Melbourne Fringe at Abbotsford Convent
Abbotsford Convent - the home of Fringe Furniture and proud venue for Melbourne Fringe events
The Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF) proudly presents contemporary arts and cultural work across all art forms. We work collaboratively with artists and in partnership with other arts and cultural organisations to attract diverse audiences, creating new conversations and new ways to engage with our unique, multi-use site. Our audiences love our non-traditional spaces and are engaged with work that encourages new ways to think about art and the world.
The ACF is proud to be a long-standing partner of Melbourne Fringe; a highlight on the annual arts and cultural calendar. In their own words, Melbourne Fringe is a big, bold (and gloriously messy) celebration of independent art, which, in our words, makes Fringe the perfect partner for us!
Fringe Furniture - registrations now open!
Fringe Furniture is held annually at the Convent with thousands of people coming to our unique spaces to see brilliant design by some of Australia’s most interesting and innovative designers. Fringe Furniture will be held from 14 September to 1 October 2017.
Registrations for Fringe Furniture 2017 are open from Monday 5 June – Monday 26 June. Artists and designers of Melbourne, the Melbourne Fringe invites you to step out of the echo chamber for Fringe Furniture 31. If you are an established or emerging designer who is looking to exhibit in a boundary-pushing showcase of cutting-edge industrial design (this is no Ikea showroom, although you might still find something comfy to sit on), then step forward. Be counted. Apply to participate in Fringe Furniture today.
