Advocacy for Perth Fringe Artists

Tuesday 1st December / posted by Caitlin Nienaber

At the start of next year Perth, Northbridge, Midland, Fremantle and Scarborough will once again come alive as the Fringe World Festival returns. Last year crowds forked out record amounts, but very few performers made any significant profit, as all acts must pay a registration fee, rent their venue, and provide Fringe with a percentage of their takings.

This may be standard business practice but one local artist has started a movement calling for a more equitable way forward. Tiffany Barton’s started a petition to encourage Fringe to make things a little easier for the artists who invest so much of their lives into making their shows a success.

She joined Cameron McAloon to talk about how she wants this to be part of a larger conversation that Perth Council, and the WA State Government, hear.
