The Toronto Fringe is more than just a summer festival. Youth and artists outreach activities, The Next Stage Theatre Festival, Tent Talks, and ongoing events throughout the year serve the theatre community at large. The Fringe Creation Lab, at the Centre for Social Innovation Annex, “welcomes independent artists year round, encouraging their creative work by offering them affordable space to make art, congregate and innovate.” (Lisa, ArtBridges)
