DCA Address Fringe Artists’ Concerns

Thursday 11th February / posted by Matt Tomich

As Perth's Fringe World continues this month, many of the festival's artists have spoken out regarding conditions behind-the-scenes.

They feel they're getting a raw deal when it comes to payment and, they feel particularly aggrieved by an alleged increase in anti-social behaviour surrounding the festival.

To promote their vision for a better and fairer fringe they've taken the conversation to the government - specifically the Director General for Culture and Arts, Duncan Ord.

RTRFM's Cameron McAloon has also spoken to Mr. Ord to get a better idea about where the artists' unhappiness is manifesting from and what plans there are — if any — to address the issues they've raised.
