Our last performance of Edinburgh Fringe 2019 has just begun. It is the 76th performance of 3 brilliant productions that IAP has supported this Fringe.
We’ve issued almost 4,000 tickets and grossed over £30,000 in sales. None of which could have been achieved without the support of Made in Scotland/Creative Scotland.
Edinburgh Fringe is an exhilarating, extraordinary place that is challenging even when supported by teams of brilliant people, platforms that raise the work and allow it to be seen as well as cash – enabling it to happen at all. To all those who do it on their own… I don’t know what to say… you’re amazing. I have no idea how you do it.
We need to take away the pressure that artists feel to excel in poor conditions with no or limited resource. We need to extend our duty of care way beyond what we do now – not just in an Edinburgh Fringe context.
IAP will be shut for the rest of the week. I’m going to lie down in a darkened room.
Big, big love.
