Theatre Network and The Roxy on Gateway have been closed since March of 2020 due to COVID-19.
In June 2021, The Nextfest Arts Co. will once again upload 400+ emerging artists to the cloud where they will sing, dance, act, write, paint, design, compose, edit, and choreograph their way into your living rooms! You are invited to stream Nextfest 2021 nightly from June 3 – 13, 2021 at nextfest.org.
For over a year, artists have been without an audience or a means to gather to make art – none more affected than emerging artists who have just started to forge the path of their careers. In the midst of the pandemic, Nextfest offers the opportunity for connection amongst early-career artists, a place to present their work, and a host of socially distant training and mentorship opportunities.
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.
You can also call us at 780-453-2440 or mail a cheque to “Theatre Network” at 8529 Gateway Blvd, Edmonton, AB T6E 6P3.
When you adopt an artist you will receive an exclusive Nextfest t-shirt and a tax receipt for the full amount donated. Plus, you and your artist(s) name’s will be displayed together on our digital adopt-an-artist wall available on the Nextfest website.
