As we move forward the ON THE EDGE: fringe festival gains ground and expands into new areas. The future for the festival is bright as many local groups including the Downtown Improvement Area, City of North Bay, REP21, Canadore College, Nipissing Arts Council, Corrdinating Body of Arts Culture and Heritage (CBACH), Aanmitaagzi Storymakers and many more have all shown support and offered both in-kind and financial backing. As we leave spring 2014 and enter summer leading to our first festival, the energy and momentum of this festival grows and the passion towards alternative theatre is tangible. Electricity is in the air and a new experience is opening in the north as OTEF becomes a reality. More to come.
