Melbourne Fringe is celebrating 40 years

In partnership with State Library Victoria, Melbourne Fringe is seeking stories from the millions of artists, audiences, volunteers, staff and supporters who have shaped the last 40 years of Fringe history. 

Whether you marched in the first Brunswick Street Parade in 1984, attended Fringe Fashion in 1996, or broadcast a show from your bedroom amidst a global pandemic in 2020. Whatever your story, big or small, profound or mundane, we want to hear it.

A bonus for telling your story is that it may appear on the Fringe website or as part of their public 40th birthday exhibition in 2022!
