Facilitating the development and presentation of innovative and experimental art in all art forms via a high profile annual, open-access, festival.
The Dunedin Fringe Arts Trust, a non-profit organisation, was established in 2004 to produce the Dunedin Fringe Festival. While this is still its core purpose, the Trust also produces several other annual projects including the New Zealand Young Writers Festival and the Amped Music Project.
The Dunedin Fringe Festival is an annual arts festival of contemporary and innovative art and performance. Dunedin Fringe was initiated in 2000 alongside the Otago Festival of the Arts and was held biennially, usually in September or October. In 2008 the Fringe struck out on its own and became an annual Festival held in March. The festival dates generally follow those of Wellington (NZ Fringe), Auckland, Adelaide and Perth to enable touring.
The focus of the Fringe Festival is on art and performance that is experimental, provocative and entertaining. The Dunedin Fringe is an open-access festival where artists register independent events that are then provided with overarching support by the festival office. The festival features emerging and established artists from throughout New Zealand as well as overseas guests.
