Pinnochio - 2017

In 2017 the Sydney Fringe entered a partnership with property owners HPG Australia to activate a site in Alexandria that was slated for residential development.

The main space was used as a festival hub and the organisation utilised the project to identify the issues around activating large-scale space, and the requirement to submit a full DA for a change of use with provision for food and beverage capabilities alongside the presentation of performing and creative arts.

The project was supported by the NSW Government via their Liquor Gaming Cultural Infrastructure Grants and was a huge success continuing into 2018 beyond the original scope of the project. For a full overview of this project please see our Anthology of Space Report.
