Darwin Fringe: Growing Local Arts and Developing Arts Audiences!

Welcome to Darwin Fringe Festival 2006!

Brace yourselves for loads of live arts and cultural activity. Running from 21st July to 13th August the Darwin Fringe program is jam packed full of theatre, dance, music, visual arts, film and comedy.

The Darwin Fringe is an annual performance and arts festival which, by issuing 'invitations to participate', provides performance opportunities for visiting national and international artists whilst facilitating & stimulating local cultural product. The Darwin Fringe spreads over a variety of venues across Darwin and Northern Territorian regions, and to the Globe live and kicking on the Internet.

The Darwin Fringe is an open festival meaning that anyone can take part. The Darwin Fringe is the major annual showcase of the Darwin arts scene. Local, independently produced work across all artforms and original music form the hub of the Darwin Fringe.

Join the Fringe & traipse around the boundaries of popular culture.
