Fringe is thrilled to announce our first ever Artist Advisory Committee, bringing together 8 artists who all have intersections with the Fringe Movement.
From Executive Director, Lucy Eveleigh:
"We wanted to pull together a group of people who are currently working in our community, who have participated in Fringe or Next Stage (or both), and represent a cross-section of that community. The committee will be tasked with looking at some of the decisions the Fringe has to make (policies, fundraising ideas, etc.). They will provide a different perspective to the organization, and make sure we are always considering our artists. We are excited to put them to work!!"
