Following The Blank Canvas Project, The Present Theatre Company announced our exciting three year strategic plan – FringeNYC 20/20. Henceforward, the New York International Fringe Festival will present approximately 200 national and international theater and performance companies in venues located across New York City each October.

There are two different segments of The New York International Fringe Festival – FringeNYC and FringeBYOV. Running alongside the festival is the Indie Convening – an annual gathering of the Indie community at large (and those with aligned interests) – featuring panels, workshops, and themed events.

These ambitious new programs are powered by the FringeNYC Alumni Association: a burgeoning cooperative comprising former participants, volunteers and staff from across FringeNYC’s first twenty years. The FringeNYC Alumni Association’s stewardship of these programs, when combined with that of our Board of Directors, is designed to create capacity and sustainability across our entire community.
