Theatre Network and The Roxy on Gateway have been closed since mid-March due to COVID-19. We are looking at what it means to be unable to do what we do best – bring people together.
Then, Nextfest came to us and said, “Hey, we have an idea.”
Nextfest will be broadcasting a showcase of 400 emerging artists in a variety of disciplines nightly from June 4 – 14.
To go along with the streamed multidisciplinary broadcasts, Nextfest is providing development programs for artists by hosting online workshops and one-on-one mentorship opportunities, ensuring emerging artists still have opportunities to grow.
There will be no ticket revenue for this year’s festival so we need our supporters more than ever.
Adopt an artist! By adopting an artist you contribute directly to building the next generation of creators. With a $100 donation per artist we will pair you up with an artist and you become their adopted Nextfest parent. Help us break the Adopt-an-Artist record! Our goal is to see 100 artists adopted this year – adopted families can be as large as you’d like.
