No Jobs in the Arts Fringe was a digital festival focused on ‘collaboration’ in the arts. No Jobs In The Arts lined up a variety of free talks, workshops, and creative events, aimed at and delivered by early-career creatives. All events were free, delivered across the 26th and 27th February 2021, and supported creatives linked to the East-Midlands.
The Fringe was in partnership with UKNA and supported by Arts Council England. In response to Covid-19, the Fringe festival was transitioned online.
