In 2019, Next Wave will invite Australia’s emerging and early career artists to be a part of our national co-commission project. ‘Next Wave X’.
Next Wave will bring together the new generation of Australian artists with some of Australia’s most exciting industry partners to realise their ambitious project for Next Wave Festival 2020.
These co-commissions will include funding and expert mentorship, with a number also including multiple presentation opportunities, facilitating successful candidates with the resources and unparalleled artist support to present on a national stage, without creative compromise.
Together we provide opportunities to work in iconic and unusual spaces, and reach artist communities across the country, ensuring Next Wave Festival 2020 will hold its place as the most dynamic national showcase of emerging artists and creative risk-taking.
All applicants for Next Wave Festival 2020 will automatically be considered for Next Wave X.
To be considered for the Next Wave X, you must apply for Next Wave Festival 2020. Our Curatorial Advisory Committee will consider all applications and tailor the support appropriate for each project.
