Next Wave Festival 2020: A Government of Artists

Next Wave is inviting artists from across Australia to form a government.

A government for disrupted histories, for radical kindness, for transcendent identities, for alternative cartographies, for unregulated beliefs, for emotional speculation, for the ideas, conversations and feelings that matter.

Next Wave is asking you, our next great artists, musicians, poets, dancers, writers, curators, producers and thinkers, to set the agenda and lead us into new realms of creative expression.

This is an opportunity for you to pitch your most critical and ambitious artistic project for presentation at Next Wave Festival 2020: A Government of Artists.
