FringeU 2011

FringeU is FringeNYC for your future! This year, FringeU will be focusing on helping FringeNYC Participants get to know the people who do year-round what FringeNYC does every summer: help the arts community grow! Advocacy and arts service organizations will be giving informational workshops every Monday and Tuesday during the festival on who they are, what they do, and how you can use their resources to help your company flourish. FringeU events will take place at FringeCENTRAL.



FringeU 2011 - "At Your Service..."

What Are We Doing About Indie Theater?
    Love theater? Find it frustrating? Looking for a sense of community? Meet up with artists and audiences, propose a starting point for discussion, then take part in one of these conversations, flit between them all or go get a coffee. If there are topics you are passionate about or annoyed with, all are possible because in Open Space you set the agenda.
