Call for artists for the 2012 Dunedin Fringe
How about you for the 2012 Dunedin Fringe?
The Dunedin Fringe Festival is calling for artists for the 2012 Festival which runs from 15-25 March. Applications are now open for key venues and for funding for the development and touring of new work.
The 2012 Dunedin Fringe Festival will build on our history of supporting contemporary artists in Dunedin, New Zealand, and from around the world to develop and present exciting new work. As always our focus is on innovative and experimental work that engages, provokes and entertains.
There’s two ways to get involved in the Festival – either by registering your own event or getting involved in a Festival produced event. A detailed Artist Information Pack is available on the Festival website which explains everything you need to know about how the Festival works, what changes have been made to the registration process, what venues you can apply for and funding options for your show.
