The Next Generation of Artists Goes Virtual


Around about this time of year, patrons would be dashing into theatres to see and hear cutting edge performances from numerous emerging culture makers.

Nextfest has been celebrating the achievements of future greats for 25 years and this year because of prevailing circumstances they have taken their festival online.

And everything is FREE! You read that right. All of their programming is being offered for free this year. All audiences need is an internet connection and a comfy seat to enjoy over 50 arts events.

Tony King dives in with Festival Director Ellen Chorley and Curator & Artist Mackenzie Brown about the challenges, the content, and the little unexpected rewards taking the festival into our homes.

Join us in celebrating the talents of emerging artists in a wide array of disciplines. To see the full line-up of programming and get involved in their workshops check out –
