The Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund has been developed to provide financial assistance to Australian artists registering their work in the Adelaide Fringe.
As an open access arts festival, many artists self-present their work in the Adelaide Fringe using their own funds. They are creative entrepreneurs, not only creating the work but then taking the financial risk of presenting that work themselves. Many receive no government funding and often just a small amount of financial assistance can mean the world of difference.
This year we raised over $100,000 toward the Artist Fund! Find out more about our previous recipients and what your donations mean to them.
During the Fringe, you can make a small donation when purchasing your tickets.
You can also download the OTR app and select the Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund as your chosen community partner. This means that OTR will make a donation on your behalf every time you make a purchase. Find out more here.
