In the tradition of Edinburgh Fringe and other international collateral events, CoNZealand Fringe has been created as a complementary programming series to the annual science fiction convention Worldcon. All our livestreams take place outside core CoNZealand programming hours and are not official CoNZealand programming items. CoNZealand Fringe is not endorsed by CoNZealand.

Please see our Code of Conduct and Privacy and Data Policy.

The Fringe was a project developed by Claire Rousseau with Adri Joy, C @ The Middle Shelf, Alasdair Stuart, Marguerite Kenner, Cheryl Morgan and Cassie Hart.
