 Fringe Festivals Around the World

Monday, 20 August 2012 at 12:00
Fringe Central, Edinburgh

Starting in 2006 this is a once-a-year chance to meet and hear from fringe festival directors around the world. Join the discussion and get the global insights, hear why they're important and how they differ. A great networking opportunity.

This panel discussion is now going into its 4th year. It’s hosted by the World Festival Network, who invites a panel of Fringe managers from around the world to discuss their festival. Though out the talk we discover the differences between the Fringes, what the trends are, what works and what doesn’t.

In 2010 nearly 200 people attended the event from performers to producers and agents. The festivals on the panel have created a network between them and synergies have begun. A lot of positive feedback was given by the festival staff, performers, agents and media who attended.

Past panel members: Ben Hill – Hollywood Fringe, Steve Gove – Prague Fringe, Barry Church Woods – Edinburgh Fringe, Anneke Jansen– Amsterdam Fringe, Tony Lankaster & Ismail Mahomed – Grahamstown Fringe, Greg Clarke and Christy Anthony – Adelaide Fringe, Stuart Every – Dubai Fringe, Patrick Goddard – Montreal Fringe, Wolfgang Hoffman – Dublin Fringe.

World Fringe Congress
Thursday, 16 August 2012 at 09:30
Edinburgh, United Kingdom

ALL FRINGE STAFF FROM AROUND THE WORLD YOU ARE INVITED TO... WORLD FRINGE CONGRESS

The inaugural World Fringe Congress will bring together Fringe directors and organisers from around the globe, during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. With generous support from the City of Edinburgh Council and Creative Scotland, the World Fringe Congress is an important part of the cultural and sporting celebrations taking place in the UK in 2012 [and is an official event of the Cultural Olympiad].

The Congress aims to inspire the Fringe community and foster international collaboration through a mix of discussion and networking events. There will be a chance for Fringes to meet Edinburgh participants and wider cultural leaders to raise awareness of the scale and importance of Fringe activity on the world stage.

The mission of the Congress is to create a lasting network and a real sense of how Fringes can work together to achieve all our aims. We welcome delegates from across the globe to join us on this exciting new journey.
The Congress takes will be free for Fringe staff and representatives to attend and some bursaries will be available to support delegates travelling to the event.
