Right and Responsibilities

Intrepid Theatre is accountable for making sure volunteers feel prepared, respected and valued as part of the Fringe team. In return, we ask that you treat the Fringe staff, artists, audience and fellow volunteers with the same respect, and approach the job with integrity and enthusiasm. We truly could not run the Fringe without you, and want to ensure that volunteering is safe and fun!

Safe Spaces

Intrepid Theatre, including the Victoria Fringe Festival, is devoted to providing an environment free of discrimination, violence, and harassment. Please check out our updated anti-discrimination policy on the Intrepid Theatre Website! If you have any questions or concerns, contact Annie, Aidan, or any Intrepid staff member.
