Dublin Fringe Festival – September 9th – 24th – Where? Just ALL OVER Dublin City
Well into becoming a National Institution Dublin Fringe Festival is as relevant and fresh to first time performers, artists, producers and writers – showcasing the best in new Irish talent and inviting over the most innovative and creative International Acts.
For over twenty years Fringe has been bringing the unexpected, the unaccepted, the mesmerising, the totally head scratching, the unheard of and the most mentioned of Spoken Word, Live Art, Spectacle, Comedy, Theatre & Outdoor Nirvana. Volunteering with Fringe is never a straightforward affair with shifts that can have you stewarding a Brass Band upon a roof top of city centre car park, to minding a horse to corralling audiences into a shipping container for a daylight rave. One thing for sure is it’s never going to be boring during those two weeks in Sept.
So why not take a change and volunteer – you never know it would be the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the Performing Arts in Dublin – Please find application attached – return completed to email@example.com – closing date is August 16th ☺ #GetYourFringeOn
