A Poetic ‘thank you’ from Julian Caddy

You Have Made This 

 

 

A cluster of contradictions

A chaos of creative visions

Predictably unpredictable

Impenetrable

Indefinable

Unstoppable

 

A miracle

 

The Fringe is our city

Our community

Our future, our present, our past

The schools, the colleges, the students in the cast

 

The freedom to try

The freedom to fail

The freedom to create

The freedom to relate

 

The freedom to say why not, to risk everything to fulfil our dream

 

Because we can

 

Because if we can touch even one more heart, then we succeed

 

So f*ck being told you can’t

And f*ck being told you aren’t

Fundable

F*ck it if you don’t fit

 

Because you made it

 

The Fringe will be there for you as long as you need it

It will stay with you long after you leave it

 

So stand tall

Be angry

Be hungry

Be furious

Be curious

 

Be free
