Fringe: Kakano Funding for the daring & different
Fringe 07 Kakano Funding for the daring and different
The Fringe Arts Trust is pleased to announce that Kakano Funding will be available to participants preparing to present daring and different new works during Fringe Festival 2007.
This fund, which this year tops $45,000, has been established with help from Creative New Zealand.
Kakano Funding provides financial support for the creation of innovative new works by New Zealand artists participating in Fringe 07. Grants to applicants usually range from $200 to $2,000.
“Kakano helps Fringe participants turn their creative ideas into reality. It provides the financial seed for people to produce an artistic project which is daring, different and new,” Fringe 07 Director, Karen Blyth, says. “It also gives the opportunity for the production or piece to be done as professionally as possible as well as maintaining the creative edge.”
Kakano Funding application forms and Fringe 07 Participant Registration forms are now available through the Fringe 07 website (www.fringe.org.nz), or by dropping in to the Fringe offices located in The Wellington Arts Centre – 69 Abel Smith St, Wellington.
If you are dropping into the Fringe offices to pick up your Fringe 07 application and registration forms you will be able to see a couple of Fringe staffers that have returned to the offices after producing the very successful Fringe 06. Both Director, Karen Blyth and Artist Liaison Coordinator Nicola Colson are back on board for Fringe 07!
