Next Wave Festival 2016: artists and dates announced!

Ahead of the Program Launch in March, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve added 19 new artists and collectives to our Kickstart and Emerging Curators Program participants, to bring you the full line-up of artists and curators creating new work for Next Wave Festival 2016. They are intelligent, ambitious and curious, and they represent the new generation in Australian art. We can’t wait to share their projects with you next year.

Whip out your 2016 planners because we’ve got some Festival dates for you! Next Wave Festival 2016 will run from 5-22 May – so that gives you plenty of time to apply for leave, book flights, and cancel all birthdays, anniversaries and other prior engagements.

In the meantime, stay tuned for our full Festival program release next March, and learn more about our fabulous Festival artists over at our Artist Hub.
