The SIT-UP Awards is an annual award at the Edinburgh Fringe to reward and support theatre to achieve greater social impact. This is an initiative of the UK registered charity Changing Ideas Limited For more details about who we are see our About Us page.
We believe in the power of theatre to achieve change both in audiences and wider society. In 2023, we have decided to make awards ahead of the Fringe to enable companies to be able to fully engage with audiences during their run and also achieve wider societal impact with their work both during and after the Fringe.
