We’re working with zero-waste Fringe venue The Greenhouse and University of Edinburgh Sustainability to organise a free event that provides Fringe participants with the opportunity to discuss environmental sustainability at the festival this year.
Artists, venues, and Fringe-workers are invited to join us in the Respite Room of Fringe Central for the Fringe’s first ever participant sustainability review. We’ll be talking about all of the incredible sustainability actions that have been happening so far, as well as discussing what we all think can be improved. We’ll be identifying some of the key issues in the way of a more sustainable Fringe, and working together to suggest some solutions. The outcome of this event will be a feed-back document to help the Fringe Society create a sustainability support network for artists, venues, and Fringe-goers, as well as a similar document aimed directly at artists and venues.
This is a drop in session with 5 different discussion groups, all running at the same time. You’re free to spend as much or as little time in each group as you want. Come for the whole 2 and half hour, or just drop in for fifteen minutes. Whatever you have time for, we’d love to hear from you!
1. Paper, marketing, ticketing and brochure

So whether you’re a carbon-neutral show or you’re totally new to the sustainability scene. Whether you’re a solo performer or part of a large arts organisation. Whether you’re an emerging artist or you’ve been doing this for years. Join the conversation, be a part of this community – lets work together to make the Fringe a more sustainable place!
