Support Job Creation for Northern Artists
It is no secret to those familiar with the arts sector that there are simply not enough jobs available in the north. As Fringe North continues to grow our goal is to have 3 full-time year-round staff positions by the start of the 2024 festival season. Fringe North currently has two part-time year-round staff. In 2023 Fringe North also provided seasonal short-term contracts between May to August for 15 youth under 30. Additionally, we were able to offer two 2 weeklong contracts during the festival. Fringe North aims to provide heart centric care for artists and patrons. Being intentional about relationship building requires a strong team of individuals so that each can give the time and dedication towards providing a holistic experience for the community. Furthermore, we believe strongly in paying artists for their work. This means that whenever funding allows, we pay artists honorariums in addition to receiving 100% of their ticket sales.
Your donations help cover the salaries associated with staff positions and short-term contracts (allowing us to provide livable wages and offer additional positions) and provide honorariums to artists participating in the festival.
This is a one time donation.
*** Please note that Fringe North is unable to provide tax deduction receipts at this time as we are registered as a not for profit instead of a charity.
