The Art Goes On
Humans have always turned to art in the most uncertain times to provide everything from distraction to comfort and clarity. The world has hit pause to address concerns around COVID-19 and the FringeArts stage may be dark for the moment, but the art continues on!
Virtually, at least.
Why not use this time to discover the art-makers creating and sharing their work online? And we know exactly where you can start…
If you’re finally getting around to that project you’ve been putting off for months and need inspiration: Grab a glass of wine and check out our podcast, Happy Hour on the Fringe!
On Happy Hour on the Fringe, you’ll get to know the creators and community members using art as a means of connection in Philly and beyond. Listen in as local and international practitioners, such as director Blanka Zizka (The Wilma Theater), Circus professionals Shana Kennedy and Ben Grinberg (Circadium), and drag queen extraordinaire John Jarboe (The Bearded Ladies Cabaret), dig into their practice, journeys, motivations, and inspirations.
If you need a break to decompress and get away from it all: Rediscover your favorites from our Digital Fringe!
As a part of the annual Fringe Festival, FringeArts presents Digital Fringe, an online showcase for creators of any digitally-based media—be it a video game, podcast, interactive website, video piece, etc.—to share their work with you.

There’s is something for everyone! If you (re)discover an artist or piece that you love, we want to hear about it! Stay connected with FringeArts and #DigitalFringe on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Most of all, take care of yourself. Stay hydrated, wash your hands often, and limit social interaction. We cannot wait to see you in person again!
