Please join us for FringeNYC 2020 Convenings. 

ABOUT THE CONVENINGS:
Thanks to all of you who who attended the Blank Canvas Project convenings and helped us envision the best possible fringe festival for New York City. We have now announced our three year strategic plan for the festival – FringeNYC 2020! You can learn more about the plan here.

The next convenings (co sponsored by IndieSpace), will be held in each borough as we design and build the twisted “BYOV” (Bring Your Own Venue) component of the festival, where VENUES bring their own ARTISTS (VBYOA). Indie venue owners & managers are encouraged to attend – we need to hear from you.

We hope you’ll read through some of the discussion on the blog and join us at one of the following events.
Let’s Make A Fringe!

Thank you for joining us for the Blank Canvas Project Convenings. 

ABOUT THE CONVENINGS:
The Blank Canvas Project convenings were a chance to gather in person to discuss a particular aspect of envisioning how to build the best possible fringe festival for New York City. All of the convenings were held at our 2017 administrative offices in Manhattan unless otherwise indicated*. 

TOPICS – we announced topics for each convening. Each night featured both structured conversation as well as some “open space” time for side conversations on the topic and relevant Blank Canvas Blog posts.
