Anyone can be an Orlando Fringe Artist! All you need is a project, a completed application, application and venue rental fees, and the ambition and imagination to become a Fringe Artist! All applicants are entered into a fair, transparent lottery, and have an equal chance of being selected to participate. We are 100% unjuried, so we don’t adjudicate based on any perceived quality of the art, we leave that to the audience. We are uncensored, so we don’t control an artists content, giving them space for 100% unfiltered creativity. And 100% of the ticket sales go back to the artists.
