History

Based in the Blue Mountains, the Festival is held in October each year to coincide with Mental Health Month. 

Blue Fringe Arts originated as the Adrienne Brown Awards in 1992.  

Adrienne Brown, born in 1969, was a young woman who had a lived experience of schizophrenia.  Her long struggle with her illness was relieved, at times, by her love for poetry, the arts and music.  

Adrienne is remembered in the Blue Fringe Arts and Literature Festival for her passion for creative expression.
