The Adelaide Fringe team have been working hard to find a way to directly support artists during the COVID-19 crisis, and are excited to announce the pilot of an online, digital Fringe experience; Adelaide FringeVIEW.
The world as we know it has changed so radically in only a few weeks. The Adelaide Fringe organiser’s hearts go out to absolutely everyone affected by COVID-19. Across the International festival landscape, they have been heartbroken to see everything cancelled. While it is absolutely necessary, it’s so sad to know that live performance will not be happening for the months ahead and that the livelihoods of artists, crew and many, many others have disappeared.
Adelaide FringeVIEW invites artists to register a video as a Fringe event. In the spirit of Fringe, they are open to all genres and are putting a call out to get creative online. Upload your pre-recorded content, film a workshop or tutorial or upload your highlights from your Fringe seasons. It is free to register as an artist and take part in the pilot. They are waiving all registration and artist ticketing fees to make it available to everyone.
Registration opens on Wednesday 15 April 2020 on the AVR HERE.
How to Watch:
For the Adelaide Fringe audiences: get ready to buy tickets to view the work of Fringe artists online, in the comfort of your own home.
Adelaide FringeVIEW is an experiment and a first of its kind for Adelaide Fringe. It is all about coming together to show support for artists in this time when all their performances, gigs, tours and festivals have been cancelled.
The Adelaide FringeVIEW pilot will run until the end of May 2020. They hope it inspires artists to be creative, innovative and think outside the usual experience or understanding of Fringe during the COVID-19 crisis.
Fringe Members have exclusive Adelaide FringeVIEW access from Wednesday 29 April 2020 with the platform officially live to the general public on Friday 1 May 2020.
