Introducing AD+
A new audio series released weekly featuring our Artistic Directorate.

As they settle into their posts, we invite you to come closer, and join them in conversation as they dive into the experiences and ideas which guide their practice and what they hope to bring to their two-year term at Next Wave.

Tune in as Dominic Guerrera (SA) & Naina Sen (NT), Daley Rangi (WA) & Kristi Monfries (ACT), Nathan Stoneham (QLD) & Tian Zhang (NSW) Theia Connell (TAS) & Amaara Raheem (VIC) unfurl everything from the complexities of identity, practice and unstructured time, lessons and loving failure and explorations into collective leadership and memory.

Accompanying music is ‘on a motel floor 2 (albury)’ by efp.
Episodes drop weekly and are available right here, via the Next Wave website.

These interviews were produced on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Eastern Kulin Nations, Next Wave is privileged to traverse the land and waterways of this continent of many nations – to share in the act of art making and culture building – grounded on justice, friendship and care. We also acknowledge the traditional lands this digital platform reaches.
