Why should I participate in the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival?

The Festival is an exciting and inclusive festival of live art. It is known for its strong programming. Through the Festival, we aim to present excellent and bold new works on social issues to the Singapore audience.

The Fringe aims to promote innovation and discussion. It does so through meaningful art, so that we think more deeply about how we are connected in this complex world.

Through the Fringe, you will be able to reach out to new audiences in Singapore and the region. Also, you can tap upon our organisational and production expertise in the presentation of your work. Additionally, you will meet fellow artists from all over the world. This is a wonderful opportunity for networking. It also encourages future collaboration amongst artists.

What is the selection process like?

The Fringe team collates and reviews all the applications that come in. We will inform all applicants of the results of the shortlisting by Friday 2 June 2023. Selected applicants will then need to provide us with more information on:

  • their funding status,
  • availability,
  • technical requirements, and so on.

Usually, the Festival is programmed for a specific year. However, we may consider your proposal for a future year if we are keen on your work, but cannot include it for the current year.
