Artist Support

FringeLAB provides year-round practical and artistic support, responding to the needs of both developing and established artists, technicians, producers and practitioners. FringeLAB is both a space and a platform of activities for training and learning.  

FringeLAB was used by over 200 companies for 6000+ hours in the last year. Fringe is devoted to cultivating connections and expertise, so artists also access in-house expertise: from marketing to producing and everything in between!

FringeLAB is part-funded by the Arts Council’s Theatre Resource Sharing Initiative and Dublin City Council’s Arts Office. 

Please see below for information on how to reserve or rent any of our spaces.
