Support the Fringe
Despite the fantastic support we get from funds, sponsors and subsidies and of course all the knowledge and connections the Fringe Society shares with us, we can’t organize the Amsterdam Fringe Festival without extra support.In order to keep organizing the AFF, to rain the artists, to offer them a stage and of course continue sending them all over the world, we need more than creativity, energy and a strong believe in the independent artists, we need money. Because the income from ticket sales goes to the artists we are dependent of public and private funds and sponsors, and now we ask you too for a contribution.
Fringe is more than just a festival
In the run up towards the festival the Fringe artists are invited to workshops (How2Fringe) regarding Cultural Entrepreneurship. We teach them, together with guest speakers, how to be an entrepreneur, how to promote your show in a creative and effective way and we give them tips & tricks about networking and acquisition.We also would like to cooperate more with more theaters in the Netherlands in order to get more Fringe shows booked after the festival. We’ll also continue our relationship with other Fringe festivals across the globe within the World Fringe Alliance like those in New York, Grahamstown (SA), Hollywood, Brighton, Prague, Perth and Adelaide to exchange talented performances.

What does Fringe do with your contribution?
- Offer performers, outside the mainstream a stage to shine
- Offer workshops to makers about: Entrepeneurship, publicity and networking
- Build and expand a national and international netwerk of festivals and theaters in order to help the development of Fringe artists
- Build a sustainable businessmodel in order to be independent
The Amsterdam Fringe Festival wants to use your contribution to continue offering talented artists a stage in the future. In the Netherlands it’s proving to be increasingly difficult to obtain a serious position within the mainstream theater scene, with experimental or otherwise different work.
We offer artists a stage and a change to show their work to an audience and reviewers. Also the AFF is the place to be for programmers and festival directors from all over the world to scout for talent. A lot of Fringers start their carrier at the festival or make a big leap in the year after, because their performance got picked up by (inter) national theaters and festivals.
Camie Bonger (Fringe 2010) said: “After the Fringe (2010) I have not been on holiday for two years, that’s how busy I have been”.
