FRINGE LAB x Squarespace partnership 2023-24

20 September 2023

Dublin Fringe Festival and Squarespace have joined forces for an exciting new partnership, FRINGE LAB powered by Squarespace.

Dublin Fringe Festival's FRINGE LAB provides a platform and space for artists to develop their artistic practice, foster a creative community, share their stories, and engage with audiences. In the coming year, Dublin Fringe Festival will partner with Squarespace to extend FRINGE LAB’s reach and influence by continuing to support the ambitions of Irish artists and makers.

“Through our dynamic partnership with Squarespace, we're thrilled to open new doors of opportunity for Irish artists and makers. FRINGE LAB powered Squarespace will empower creatives to not only craft their stories but also share them with the world. This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to fostering artistic growth and community, and we can't wait to see the incredible work that will emerge from this exciting union." - David Francis Moore, Director of Dublin Fringe Festival

FRINGE LAB powered by Squarespace Program 

Dublin Fringe Festival and Squarespace will work together to enrich FRINGE LAB. Through this partnership, artists will have access to tailored workshops, led by Squarespace experts and mentorship opportunities from multi-disciplinary performer and creative PJ Kirby,  aimed at enhancing their skills and supporting their artistic development. Both organisations share a commitment to nurturing creativity, supporting emerging talent, and helping artists thrive in the digital era. 

I’m absolutely buzzing about this partnership and what it will offer creatives in Ireland. The idea that we will work in collaboration with artists to spot opportunities to extend their work’s reach beyond the stage is very exciting to me. Dublin Fringe is a place where you can experiment with new ideas in mediums that you haven’t tried before which produces innovative work. That’s just one of the reasons I love it and I can’t wait to get started.” - PJ Kirby, Irish artist and Squarespace customer

Dublin Fringe Festival and Squarespace look forward to an inspiring year ahead filled with innovative workshops and opportunities for artists that will help shape the future of Irish arts and culture.
