FRINGE is a communicative platform for academics at different stages in their careers and from different disciplines. It integrates PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and established academics, as well as artists, curators and cultural institutions. Our network structure is committed to offering a gender and regional balance, and we co-organize activities with related research groups, networks and citizen-based groups.
