Our first ever online exhibition in 2020 was an amazing success showcasing a brilliant and inspiring collection of art and literature that was experienced by more people than ever before. In 2021, Blue Fringe took this online event to the next level with new premium 3D virtual gallery experiences, an interactive online book, a printed book, and a streamed awards event on Facebook and our website. 

In 2022 Blue Fringe is delighted to be able to have a face-to-face exhibition once again as well as a Youth and Adult Virtual Gallery and Virtual Book.

With thanks & gratitude to the wonderful supporters & sponsors of Blue Fringe 

The festival would not have been possible without the support of many generous local people and businesses over the years.  The Blue Mountains City Council has also been a long time supporter of the Festival and recognises the important cultural role the event plays in our community and in generating positive conversations around mental health.
