Virtual Festival

James Pack/ August 31, 2020/ Events, News/ 0 comments

With the pandemic situation changing each week, we at the Tucson Fringe Festival had planned to not plan or have any kind of festival this coming year. Perhaps we needed a break. As we saw what other festivals were doing and how they were adapting, we decided we needed some kind of event. We’ll have a virtual festival in January instead of in-person performances, but we’re doing things a little different. To make things easier for us and easier for the performers, we are paying the performers for their creative works and offering free performances. We will ask for a suggested donation so that we may continue to lighten the burden on those of us in the entertainment sector. We’re here to help the community and give artists, who may not always find a platform to express themselves, a place to call home. If it’s important to you as a performer, it’s important to us.

We created plans early on and continued to discuss them through early June, but as the world changes week by week, even day by day, we found ourselves struggling to keep up. The murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahamud Arbery, George Floyd, and countless others has brought the Black Lives Matter movement to the forefront of the national and global conversation. With this came serious, tangible discussions surrounding our racist conditioning. As a board, we asked ourselves: are we adequately supporting diverse performers and connecting with all communities? And we realized that we had not
