Not every artist has the same advantages, but we believe anyone deserves access to a stage to showcase their talent. There is no Fringe without artists, without risk-taking, and without experimentation. This fund, supported by the Rochester Area Community Foundation, offers $250 to $1000 of funding to individual productions bringing work to the Rochester Fringe Festival in 2023. Funding will be prioritized for shows that face financial barriers.
The fund is for individual artists, companies, and productions with financial need who would like to bring their show to the Fringe in 2023.
Your show must be registered* for the 2023 Fringe.
You must be presenting live and in-person performance.
You must have a demonstrated need for funding.
* Shows are registered once they have applied, accepted an offer from an Official Fringe Venue, and paid their registration fee ($50-$125).
