Beyond the Fringe: Online Art During COVID-19

Posted March 24th, 2020

In the wake of COVID-19, Philadelphia’s shelter-in-place decree, and many people (including FringeArts staff) working remotely and moving their social lives almost entirely online, Philadelphia’s independent artists continue to make new online art accessible to audiences wherever they are. Artists can add their work to this list by filling out this form. While you’re practicing social distancing, here’s some artists to check out from home:

Coffee and a Play  by Amanda Shaffern & Frank Schierloh

Every week, Wednesday at 2pm, we will be doing a live reading of a play, done by way of google hangout and Facebook Live, featuring Philly actors. We have the option of tipping through venmo which will be split among those reading that week!

Next Reading: Wednesday 4/1 at 2pm Raised in Captivity by Nicky Silver
