Artists are the DNA of Adelaide Fringe.

We believe in supporting artists to present new work and ensuring all South Australian’s can experience the magic of the Fringe.

In 2018 the Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund supported 13 projects that challenged, entertained and altered perspectives - extraordinary legacies have been achieved through your support.


“We would not have been able to do this season without the Artist Fund and the support we received from the festival. The support and the funds got us to Adelaide, gave us a roof over our heads, spread the word, connected us with new audiences and producers, so we could work our butts off and deliver a smash hit season. Thanks you from the bottom of our glittery hearts and see you next year.” -  - Tessa Waters, Glittery Clittery; A Consensual Party
