To help with any programming enquiries and to assist artists seeking onward touring opportunities, the Fringe have created two bespoke online platforms - Fringe Connect and Fringe Marketplace. 

———————————————————————————————————

Fringe MarketplaceFringe Marketplace

Fringe Marketplace is an online platform created to connect programmers, presenters and commissioners from all over the world with professional artists and tour-ready work at the Fringe. The work on Marketplace has been selected by Fringe venue programmers and assessed by Fringe associates; its purpose is to help you find work that fits your programming specifications and to make the Fringe a valuable platform for artists seeking onward touring opportunities.

To access Fringe Marketplace, you must have a proven capacity to book work and / or offer development pathways for work or be an agent seeking new clients. On Marketplace you will be able to watch videos artists have provided, as well as access information about their shows and how to contact them. In addition, you will also get access to the Show Directory of all artists and companies who indicate during their registration they are presenting tour-ready work at the festival.

Register via Fringe Connect HERE.

Fringe ConnectFringe Connect 

Fringe Connect is a space for connecting with and building your Fringe community. Part social network, part events space, Fringe Connect is developed with artists and industry in mind. A key priority for those coming to the Fringe is to connect with each other, exchange ideas and information, and to build lasting working relationships for the future. Fringe Connect will allow users to set up a profile with information about their Fringe-related and professional experiences and interests. Once a user has set up a profile, they will have access to year-round digital events, archived recordings from past events, resources and information relating to the Fringe and the wider sector as well as news and opportunities. Register HERE.
