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.
Blue Fringe 2021 Awards categories were
ART | PHOTOGRAPHY | SCULPTURE | TEXTILES | POETRY | SHORT STORIES
Monetary prizes to be awarded for each category.
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.
The Organising Committee for Blue Fringe is made up of workers from Springwood Neighbourhood Centre, Belong Blue Mountains, Stride Mental Health and Blue Mountains Women’s Health and Resource Centre and a very committed and passionate team of wonderful volunteers.
