Wandsworth Arts Fringe

Wandsworth Arts Fringe wants you! #WAF10


Wandsworth Council’s Wandsworth Arts Fringe (WAF) is celebrating its tenth anniversary in May 2019. We want you to help us make #WAF10 as spectacular as possible! We’re looking for artists, potential venues, schools, and local businesses who want to get involved and join the party.

WAF is the perfect opportunity to showcase your talent – whoever you are and whatever you do. Over 700 artists took part in #WAF2018, and 98% of our audiences rated their WAF experience either excellent or good.

Whether you’re a community arts group or an international superstar, we pride ourselves on being a testing ground for bold, experimental work that is both hyper local and astonishingly international. WAF attracts artists from the width and breadth of the UK, from across globe, and from down the street – 2018 alone saw performers and exhibitors from as far afield as Malaysia, India, Canada, Australia, Ethiopia and Japan.

Since it developed out of Wandsworth Arts Festival in 2009, WAF has gone from strength to strength. In 2018 the festival drew more than 20,000 visitors to over 180 events across the borough, from street performances to big art picnics, comedy to circus, odd-bod opera, dance, debates, and everything in between.

For the ten-year anniversary, WAF is encouraging you to go big. So, whatever kind of creative practitioner you are, if you want to try out new work, connect with creative networks and be part of something that thrills, moves and inspires audiences from across London, we want to hear from you!
