#FutureFringe campaign

Updated: Sep 12, 2020

Staging Change has come together with zero waste venue, The Greenhouse, to create the #FutureFringe campaign. This campaign, which is supported by the University of Edinburgh and the Fringe Society, invites anyone involved in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to submit responses to the simple question “what does your #FutureFringe look like?”. We welcome input from residents, venues, and participants, and will be using responses to inform calls for change at all levels of the Festival on topics such as inclusivity, environmental sustainability and accessibility.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has become a staple of the events calendar not just in Edinburgh, but for arts groups across the world. Like many other major events, it will be particularly conspicuous by its absence this - but that doesn’t mean the action stops.

Oli Savage – one of the founding members behind the #FutureFringe campaign said: “there’s a big narrative at the Fringe that if we want things to be done differently, it’s up to the powers-that-be to make it happen. In fact, the Fringe is made by locals, artists, audience members, venues, just as much as it’s made by the Fringe Society themselves. Anyone can help create the Fringe, which means it’s up to everyone to make it even better. We want to help them do that.”
