Top 10 highlights in China-UK Year of Cultural Exchange

3. Free approach to the Edinburgh Forest Fringe

Launched at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2007, Forest Fringe builds bridges between audiences and performers to enable exciting, improbable and spectacular things to happen.

From June 27 to July 9, a collective-based approach to arts included activities such as world dance, independent art exhibitions, grassroots creative projects and more opened to the public in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing for free. Independent artists brought their works of performance art, including Tim Etchell's Remote Collaboration, Andy Field's Incidental Plays and Neil Callaghan and Simone Kenyon's One.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe dates back to 1947 when it was an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival. It has since grown into one of the world’s largest arts festival, lasting more than 20 days every August.
