Our aim is to make sure our audiences and artists truly represent the diversity of our beautiful city. Embodying the principle of “First Nations First” is vital to us, and we’re determined to put it into practice at every step of our journey as a Festival and organisation.
The Deadly Tix Program plays a key role in achieving our vision for a Festival that celebrates and respects First Nations People. By offering discounted tickets, we warmly invite underrepresented communities in our city to participate in the Fringe festivities.
Reducing financial barriers is essential because it acknowledges the existing gap in access to arts for indigenous Australians. Without the participation of First Nations people in our audiences, we wouldn’t be staying true to our principles or providing platforms for their voices to guide us.
Our hope for the future is to see barriers dismantled, making programs like Deadly Tix obsolete. We’re devoted to removing access barriers and ensuring The Sydney Fringe becomes a space where everyone can unite in the celebration of arts and culture.
