The programme of free professional development events for participants at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe has been announced, including sessions on mental health, parenting in the performing arts and harassment in the industry.
The full line-up of 125 events will begin on August 1, ahead of the fringe’s official opening on August 3. The opening address will this year be delivered by comedian and writer Deborah Frances-White, host of The Guilty Feminist podcast.
The events – which are free for registered fringe participants – take place at Fringe Central in Appleton Tower, home to the Fringe Society’s participants services. They are aimed at performers, venues and arts industry professionals and the main emphasis is on training, onward touring, industry and technical issues.
This year’s programme features an increased number of events concerning issues of inclusion, equality and mental health.
