Southern Cross Care’s Fringe program is back for 2018!

The Fringe launch on 1 February featured a performance from Hypnotist Isaac Lomman.

Fringe Head of Artists Venues, Jo O’Callaghan, and Southern Cross Care CEO David Moran, also gave speeches.

Mr Moran, said “…our Fringe program brings art, culture and entertainment to people who would not be able to get involved in the Adelaide Fringe.

“We’re so proud to be offering our third Fringe program in 2018, and continue to look for ways to help it grow in the future,’ Mr Moran said.

From Saturday 17 February, to 16 March, five Southern Cross Care sites will host 10 Australian and international Fringe performers.

We’re also hosting three Fringe Artspace Days open to the public and feature performers and interactive activities for attendees.

Southern Cross Care was the first South Australian aged care provider to host a Fringe program.

Since the inaugural program in 2016 we have brought international and local acts to our community, with great results.

Southern Cross Care residents said that their feelings of wholeness and empowerment improved after the Fringe.

Over 410 people attended Southern Cross Care’s 2017 Fringe, with each Fringe Artspace attracting close to 250 people.

Also, 75% of residents surveyed also experienced a high level of enjoyment when attending the Fringe.
