Too cool for a bio.

Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.

MELBOURNE FRINGE PROGRAM

aboutIT

Lygon Street's Finest

Camp Conscious Collective produced and programmed two new independent venues at Melbourne Fringe, creating spaces for queer and female-identifying performance artists. We located two intimate pop-up theatres on Lygon Street, just a stroll from Fringe's sparkly new Trades Hall Hub.

We had a diverse programme of theatre, stand-up, improvised comedy, spoken word, clowning (and a cheeky wine tasting) between our Rattlesnake Saloon and Universal Restaurant venues. We showcased artists from our local Melbourne, interstate, and even some internationally hailing from New Zealand. It was a number of our artists' first ever Fringe event, with some producers as young as 18 years old, and some producers so seasoned we hosted Fringe's only show to have a salami sponsorship.

Camp Conscious Collective is incredibly grateful for the recognition of our work by Melbourne Fringe as the recipient of their 2019 Venue Of The Year Award.

We are immensely proud of our two award-nominated shows, La Nonna (Best Cabaret) and Where Are We Now (Best Words & Ideas).

Camp Conscious Collective acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, who are the traditional custodians of the land this project was created on, and extend our respect to all elders of our nation past, present and emerging.
