Local Politician Supports Fringe Artists

Monday 29th February / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Fringe World has wrapped up for another year and after the last tent has been packed and the last beer poured, the festival is set to deliver its largest ever boost to the Perth economy.

According to the 2015 Festival Impact Report, the total gross economic movement achieved by the Festival in Western Australia was almost $70.9 million, value-adding $51.73 for every $1 of state government investment in the event.

This year, the numbers are set to be even bigger, however, there are many who believe that artists are not seeing a sustainable portion of the profits.

Labor Member for Mirabooka, Janine Freeman has been advocating for better conditions for local artists.

She recently delivered a speech to parliament highlighting the financial difficulties facing Western Australian Fringe performers on the back of serious concerns raised by some of the artists themselves and she joined Cam McAloon in the studio during The Mag to discuss.
