Digital Fringe Awards

Some of our favourite partners have jumped on board this year to offer awards to the artists in our festival.

The winners were announced at Awards Night, part of our Closing Night Party at the virtual Fringe Patio on Saturday, July 31. More details on our POSTSCRIPT Live(stream) page here.

Statement from the Seguin Family

"We want this award to celebrate accessibility in the performing arts because we believe that everyone should have the chance to follow their passion.

David was a life-long supporter of the arts and especially live performance. He faced challenges in his life as a result of his Down's Syndrome, but was passionate about music, dance and theatre both as a patron and a performer. His love of the arts brought joy to everyone in his life and we can think of no better way to honour his memory than giving more people the opportunity to share their own creativity.

The David Seguin Memorial Award for Accessibility in the Arts is a celebration of ability in all of its forms. Through encouragement and reward, we hope that more companies and artists will engage with issues of accessibility, and in so doing create a more inclusive world."
