Fringe Furniture 31 - 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival



Project description: Fringe Furniture 31
Melbourne Fringe Festival,13 September-1 October 2017

From the reassuringly practical to the confusingly obtuse, Fringe Furniture has seen it all. A boundary-pushing annual showcase of cutting-edge industrial design, this is no Ikea showroom (though you might still find something comfy to sit on).

Design brings us together, around tables or on couches, in love-seats and back-seats and those weird egg seats. In 2017, Fringe Furniture is all grown up, and for the 31st exhibition we asked artists to step out of the echo chamber and consider the transcendental power of design – how the practical objects we use every day (and likely take for granted) might help bring us closer and free the voice, spark conversation and give way to new kinds of communication. Bet you never thought a chair could do that, right?

The stunning Abbotsford Convent has once again thrown open its doors as the long-standing home to this truly unique Melbourne Fringe stalwart. Come ready to buy, or ready to re-think – but expect the unexpected. We guarantee you’ll have something to say about this.

My role: Associate Producer


I joined the creative team of Tremor in October 2016, taking over the organisation of final marketing efforts before and during the season.

I managed communication between Arts House staff, the Production Manager, and the creative team, ensuring a consistent message across all channels.  I researched potential organisations and individuals for cross-promotion and created updated marketing copy for specific audiences.  I also created content for all creative team members to share through their personal and professional networks.

I also supported the lead artist and other team members with other tasks where necessary, for example by sourcing costumes.
