Next Wave is the most comprehensive platform in Australia for a new generation of artists taking creative risks. Next Wave produces unparalleled learning programs and a biennial festival which reflect a commitment to social and cultural diversity, environmental sustainability and inclusion.
A world of creative discovery, massive dreams realised, cultural norms disrupted and new dialogues in contemporary arts and culture.
We craft extraordinary learning and presentation opportunities that empower emerging artists to challenge our understanding of what art can be, where it takes place, and who will be watching.
We do this by:
We work from a place of openness, generosity, enthusiasm and warmth.
We are big dreamers, careful and critical thinkers, and unyielding in our drive to support artists to produce their best work.
We believe the only conversation worth having is an inclusive one. We seek a diversity of expression in all our work, and are built to learn, respond and adapt according to the needs of our artists and communities.
We are committed to leading the way in cultural inclusion, accessibility and environmental sustainability practices. We advocate for artists, and recognise the intrinsic value of art and art-making.
