Opening Space at the World Fringe Congress



The World Fringe Congress brought together organisations from all over the world to explore the future of Fringe Festivals and to identify potential links and common ground. Sandwiched between two more traditional days of talks and panel discussions, we conversified the middle day! During an Open Space Conference format, participants created the agenda and decided their own sessions.

os3The conversation caught fire and there were some passionate discussions and even the formation of the fledgling North America Fringe Festivals Association.




The agenda was “owned” by the participants and the conversation created an impact that still reverberates to this day.
