Help us bring the new Roxy to life

On January 13, 2015 Theatre Network lost their home of The Roxy Theatre – which left a hole in the arts community and on 124 Street in Edmonton.

Now, Theatre Network is working to bring a New Roxy Theatre back where it belongs.

We need your generosity to Rebuild the Roxy Theatre. With your financial support the New Roxy will rise from the ashes!

Want to Support Nextfest?

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.
