Next Wave Collective is a two year giving program, where an intimate group of supporters experience Next Wave’s unique festival cycle from the inside.
Meet artists. See how art gets made. Engage in the ideas that drive it.
The 2019/20 Next Wave Collective is a network of like-minded people who support our artists as they work towards presenting their ambitious ideas at Next Wave Festival 2020: A Government of Artists.
Joining the Collective is a statement about the future you want to see. It means Next Wave artists are surrounded by a loyal community of supporters who share our values.

– Invitations to intimate meet-and-greets nationwide

Make a one-off donation to Next Wave and support the creation of ambitious new art.
Reduced investment in the arts hits young and disadvantaged artists the hardest. The role we play is more important than ever, ensuring that the most ambitious, curious and courageous new voices in Australian art find their audience. We do this attentively, with a small, committed team, so that everything we raise is directed to working closely with each artist to achieve their vision.
Whether your contribution is big or small, every dollar counts. Help us develop new talent and create new work. Donations over $50 are acknowledged as Change Makers.
Make a bigger impact.
We know we’re not yet all that we could be; whether it’s exploring the creative possibilities of VR with game developers; enabling international exchange; reaching into more remote communities; the list goes on of possibilities to explore together.
Make a significant gift, knowing that your dollar goes further at Next Wave than at many other institutions. You can remove the barriers that prevent artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, who have disability, or who are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, from achieving their creative potential. And you can trust that with a 33 year track record, Next Wave understands needs of these young artists like no other.
Future Shapers are co-creators, so get in touch to start a collaboration. If you are interested in shaping the future of Next Wave with a donation of $5000 or more, contact Priya Pavri, General Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 03 9329 9422.
