Fringe Arts Bath is a non profit-making artist-led organisation, entirely ran by volunteers.
We aim to raise the profile of contemporary visual arts in Bath, provide opportunities for early-career and emerging artists, and put art in unusual places in unexpected ways for people to happen across and interact with.
The FaB team organise a two-week festival of contemporary visual art exhibitions, events and workshops during Bath Fringe Festival in May/June each year. Free for all to attend, occupying empty shops, unusual spaces and making appearances around the streets of Bath.
FaB started as (and still is) Bath’s only annual contemporary visual arts festival, growing out of the Bath Fringe Festival’s visual arts strand to become it’s own organisation in 2007, and sees itself as a cheeky little sister to the Bath Fringe. (visit www.bathfringe.co.uk for info).
The committee organising the festival are all volunteers and all do it for the love of the visual arts. If you are keen on seeing more decent art happening in Bath and have a love for the visual arts as much as we do then please help, see our volunteer page.
FaB are keen to hear from prospective volunteers and artists throughout the year, if you have something interesting to tell us then please do so.
