The National Association of Fringe Festivals with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Heritage has funding available to support Fringe Artists that are ready to tour to Fringe Festivals across Aotearoa in 2024 and 2025.

Applicants can apply for up to $8,000 to tour their Fringe show to a minimum of two of the following NAFF Festivals:

  • Auckland Fringe in 2024
  • Whangarei Fringe in 2024
  • New Zealand Fringe in 2025
  • Dunedin Fringe in 2025
  • Nelson Fringe in 2025
  • Fringe in the Stings in 2025

Please note, successful applicants must tour to their selected Fringe Festivals in the year outlined above.

To be eligible for NAFF funding, your show must have been presented at a Fringe Festival in New Zealand within the last three years.

The aim of this funding is to support artists to take their work to other regions, therefore, you cannot apply for funding to present your show at a Fringe Festival you have previously presented the show at. Applicants are welcome to submit a video outlining the project if written applications are inaccessible however, all applicants must provide a clear project budget for the proposed tour.

Applications must be received by the Fringe office no later than 5​pm, 30 April 2024.

Applicants will be notified of the results in May.
