Nelson Fringe Arts Charitable Trust was established to provide charitable governance for the Nelson Fringe Festival and other artistic projects emerging in the Nelson region. The trust takes the ‘Fringe Arts’ mantle to mean providing innovative and accessible events to the public that expose the community to new and diverse performance experiences.

The aim is to grow, develop, and encourage performing artists in the region by providing a platform to perform new work, as well as networking, and professional development opportunities with other artists.

The trust acknowledges the Fringe movement in our country and across the world and seeks to work co-operatively with other regional, national, and international individuals, theatre companies, and event organisations. We aim to pull artists to the ‘Centre of New Zealand’ with our gravity; and also shoot talented Nelsonians out to the world!

The Trust is:

Daniel Allan (Chair Person)

Madeline Austin (Deputy Chair Person)

Deborah Brooks (Secretary)

We are so grateful to everyone who made the 2018 festival a success. We really believe in the value of this festival for our city and for the artists and audiences involved.

If you are keen for this event to continue and are interested in showing your respect and support for the artists involved please consider donating to our page today. We believe that art is a right, not a privilege, and we aim to keep our ticket prices as affordable as possible so that everyone who wants to can attend the Nelson Fringe. We also believe that our artists deserve to be paid for the work they create so we rely on the generosity of the community to help us make that happen. Please assist us in making both of these things a reality and ensuring the quality and future of this event in our community!

Kind Regards

Laura Irish

Artistic Director
