Upcoming Toronto Fringe Stuff!

I’m back from Parliament Hill – more on that later. Today – we prepare for things Fringe!


Call for Submissions: 2013 Fringe New Play Contest  – TOMORROW

Applications for the 2013 Fringe New Play Contest are now open!

Remember Kim’s Convenience? Remember Help Yourself? These Fringe shows were brought into the spotlight by the Fringe New Play Contest, sponsored by Exclamation Foundation and macIDeas. If you’re a playwright and want to be a household name, the Fringe New Play Contest is the best way to fast-track that success. Even better – this year is Fringe’s 25th Anniversary, so the media attention will be bigger and bolder than ever! Applications close on Friday October 26th at 5pm, or when 80 applications are received.

Details are available on the website.

Call for Submissions: TD Culturally Diverse Artists Project Applications

With generous and invaluable support from TD Bank, we are launching the second of a three year pilot project to encourage greater participation in the Fringe Festival by artists who self-identify as culturally diverse.  Our aim is to remove some of the traditional barriers to participation, including financial concerns and a sense of being excluded from mainstream events.

TD’s Culturally Diverse Artists Project applications for the 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival will  close on November 5th.

Event: The Creation Lab Open House

Announcing the Fringe OPEN HOUSE – a monthly event in the Fringe Creation Lab where anyone can use the beautiful, loft-style studio spaces for FREE. This is part of our goal to keep the Fringe Creation Lab as accessible we can – we want the Lab to be a resource for rehearsal, professional development, networking and just plain hangin’ out. Inspired by the Centre for Social Innovation HOT DESK project, the OPEN HOUSE is our way of offering artists the opportunity to share resources and workspace.

One Wednesday per month we will open the doors of the Lab to anyone to use for their creative purpose. Need some writing time? Need to learn lines for an audition? Need to stretch and get physical? Just need a space to think amongst creative minds?  All are welcome at the OPEN HOUSE. There are no rules – only empty space waiting to be filled.

You can see why I love this organization. Hopefully something up there piques your interest.
