Adelaide Fringe Registration Subsidy

The City of PAE will provide a 50% subsidy for registrations of any Adelaide Fringe exhibitions, performances and events held within the Council area. Artists do not need to live within the City of PAE, but must deliver their exhibition, performance or event within the City.
Eligible artists need to register with the Adelaide Fringe - you will need to pay the 50% registration fee as per the fee stated in AVR once you have connected with a venue in the City of Port Adelaide Enfield. Adelaide Fringe will invoice the City of PAE directly for the further 50%. Contact Artists Services at the Adelaide Fringe on 08 8100 2022 if you need further clarification.

Details of your event/performance/exhibition need to be sent to service@cityofpae.sa.gov.au with "PAE Fringe – Registration" in the subject heading – along with a high resolution (300dpi) image for possible inclusion in the City of PAE Fringe Guide.
All artists receiving the registration subsidy are required to display the City of PAE logo on any relevant printed material. Contact communications@cityofpae.sa.gov.au for the logo and conditions of use.

A City of PAE Fringe Guide will be produced featuring all exhibitions, performances and events within the Council area. This will be distributed to all local venues and through Council's Civic Centre, Visitor Information Centre, libraries and community centres.
