Three Reasons to Host an Artist this Adelaide Fringe

Wed, Jan 3 2024
Every year, the Adelaide Fringe envelops our city in a whirlwind of creativity, talent, and exhilarating performances. It's a celebration of artistry and community spirit and the reason the city shifts its atmosphere across February and March. One of the core aspects of Fringe’s success is the support and generosity of locals. This year, we're urging the Adelaide and South Australian community to be a part of the experience by hosting an artist.

Here are three reasons that might just compel you to get involved and host an artist in 2024. 

Immerse Yourself in the Global Arts Scene:

The Adelaide Fringe is renowned globally, attracting talented artists from every corner of the world. By hosting an artist, you have the rare opportunity to experience different cultures, art forms, and stories first-hand, right within the comfort of your home. It's like having a personal gateway to the global arts scene. You'll not only be providing a roof for an artist but also learning about their creative journey, the inspirations behind their work, and perhaps even witness the behind-the-scenes process that brings their performances to life, and hey, maybe you’ll even get to experience the Adelaide Fringe itself from a new perspective. 

Earn Some Extra Money:

With the influx of artists during the Adelaide Fringe, there's a high demand for local accommodations. By renting out your spare room, you can earn some additional income. This arrangement is not only beneficial for you but also offers artists a more homely and comfortable alternative to conventional accommodations, without the crippling bill of a month-long hotel stay that would otherwise make their artistic pursuit less worthwhile as a working artist. It's a win-win – you get to monetarily benefit while also supporting the artistic community.

Forge Lasting Connections:

Host an artist, and you might just make a lifelong friend. Over the years, many hosts have shared stories of the deep connections they've formed with their artists, the lasting memories they've created, and how these experiences have enriched their lives. It's a unique bond, born out of shared experiences, late-night conversations, and a mutual love for the arts. Your house becomes more than just a place to stay; it becomes a home filled with stories, laughter, and creativity.

But don’t just take our word for it! Dive into the testimonials and stories online from previous hosts to truly understand the depth and breadth of experiences that come with hosting an artist.

Next Adelaide Fringe, be more than just an audience member. Be a part of the journey, the story, the celebration. Host an artist and discover the magic that happens behind the curtains and beyond the stage.
