Through its life, Blue Fringe has showcased the talents of thousands of poets, artists, photographers and story tellers. For many, it is the first time they have shared their work publicly and for some the experience is life changing.

“Blue Fringe is an opportunity to be heard, to be seen. It opens up conversations. It brings mental illness out of the darkness and into the light.”

Blue Fringe Art & Literature GENERAL ENTRY is open to people aged 18 and over with a lived experience of mental illness. 

The Blue Fringe Art & Literature YOUTH ENTRY is open to anyone of High School age in celebration of mental well-being and resilience.
