Melbourne Fringe Wants Your Story
Posted by Team APATA | Jan 6, 2022
This year The Melbourne Fringe Festival turns 40 and they are celebrating in fierce fringey fashion.
In partnership with State Library Victoria, Melbourne Fringe is seeking stories from the millions of artists, audiences, volunteers, staff and supporters who have shaped the last 40 years of Fringe. Remember the days of Fringe Inventions, and Not the Archibald Prize? Or when 4,500 of us got naked in the freezing cold for Spencer Tunick’s iconic photograph in 2001? Maybe you marched in the first Brunswick Street Parade in 1984, attended Fringe Fashion in 1996, or broadcast a show from your bedroom amidst a global pandemic in 2020.
Beginning in 1982 as the Fringe Art Network – The Fringe has evolved into one of Victoria’s most significant art organisations supporting new and emerging artists of all disciplines.
Together with the State Library Victoria your story, big or small, profound or mundane, will help to create a pretty special exhibition and public program centred on the stories that have shaped Melbourne Fringe over four decades.
You can submit your story as an audio recording, record a video or write it down.
