The Board of Perth’s Fringe World festival have signed off on two actions designed to assist artists devastated by the collapse of independent event management company, JumpClimb.

Legal action will be prioritised to ‘claw back’ artists’ fees and if such action is unsuccessful, the festival will return $85,000 in booking fees to the affected artists.
