As part of the services the Fringe Society offers to all those taking part in shows, the Fringe Central Events Programme delivers a series of professional development workshops, seminars, discussions and creative labs throughout the month of August.
In 2016, the Fringe Society worked with 44 partners in order to deliver a comprehensive and diverse programme of over 110 events. The programme’s overall aims are to; develop skills, expand perceptions, build networks, advance careers and aid in the health and well-being of all those involved in a Fringe show.
There are a number of reoccurring programme sections which are detailed in the proposal guidelines, however the Fringe Society is open to discussing additional/ ad-hoc sections.
In line with its continued commitment to support participants in an open and impartial manner, all events presented within Fringe Central must:
Be free to attend
Be open to anyone taking part in a Fringe show
Not be used as a promotional tool for any Fringe show
