“To be an artist is to believe in life” – Henry Moore
If an artist believes in life … then we believe in artists and support them to be the best that they can be.
The Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund has been developed to provide financial assistance to Australian artists registering their work in the Adelaide Fringe, and to help disadvantaged groups experience Fringe shows. In 2017, thirteen grants totalling $85,000 were awarded to independent Australian artists to support their work in the 2018 Adelaide Fringe. You can find more about all thirteen recipients here.

“Adelaide Fringe was established as an un-curated festival for independent artists to present their own work. That philosophy is as important today as it was then, and artists need your help”
Frank Ford AM Founding Chair, Adelaide Fringe
