Dublin Fringe Festival is dedicated to advancing, strengthening and supporting the independent arts sector.  


FRINGE LAB provides year-round practical and artistic support, responding to the needs of both developing and established artists, technicians, producers and practitioners. FRINGE LAB is both a space and a platform of activities for training and learning. Professional performing artists need somewhere to work. FRINGE LAB was used by over 200 companies for 6,000+ hours in the last year. Fringe is devoted to cultivating connections and expertise, so artists also access in-house expertise: from marketing to producing and everything in between! FRINGE LAB is part funded by the Arts Council’s Theatre Resource Sharing Initiative and Dublin City Council’s Arts Office.
