Mentor applications for the Fringe Scholarship Program are due by 11:59pm on January 15th. Mentoring a Hollywood Fringe Scholarship recipient is a tremendous way to support artists, plus all mentors will receive free quarter-page ads in this year's Guide to promote their own projects. To be a mentor, you need to have participated in at least one Hollywood Fringe Festival and commit to meetings and events with your mentee. For more information on the requirements and to apply, visit the Fringe mentor page.
The first Fringe workshop of the season, Working with Venues, is coming up next Thursday, January 18th from 8-10pm at Thymele Arts. The event is free and there will be a mixer in the space following the event with beer and wine available for a $3 donation.
Parking in the area can be tricky, so please plan ahead. There is a sub level parking garage right around the corner at 1110 N. Western ($1.50 for the first two hours or $8.00 for the day; most days garage parking is free after 6:30 pm). The venue is just down the block from the Metro's red line (Hollywood/Western or Vermont/Santa Monica) and a number of buses stop right outside the front door (757, 147, 207, 704, 4).
