Festival Application Briefings

We are now calling for projects to be a part of the 2014 Next Wave Festival, 1 – 11 May in Melbourne, Australia.

Artists participating in Next Wave’s programs receive artistic and producing guidance from our expert staff, brokerage into funding and presentation contexts, and connections and feedback from like-minded peers across the country.

We are particularly keen to hear from artists working as part of a new collaboration, collective or ARI as well as artists from NT, SA, WA, TAS and Canberra.  As part of this call-out we have secured two very special creative partnerships, with and work by regional artists.

We’re only looking for 8 – 10 projects, so head to the Festival Applications page for more information, and to get a feel for our 2013 – 2014 theme. You need to start a conversation with us before April 10, so get going!

We’ll be holding 2 online briefing sessions on Wednesday 27 March 12:30pm (AEST) with Artistic Program Manager Serena Bentley and Wednesday 3 April  6pm (AEST) with Artistic Director Emily Sexton. Tune in here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nextwavefest
