1. Obsessed with the new. Adamant about context. Devoted to extraordinary. In love with locality. Conscious of time. Next Wave is art made now.

    Next Wave challenges our understanding of what art can be. We support young and emerging artists to create urgent, risky, generous, ambitious and essential art. Our refined arts development programs help young artists explore their potential, ultimately presenting their work to a massive arts-loving community in our biennial festival.

    This is a taste of our 2012 Festival, the next Next Wave Festival is on 1-11 May 2014.

  2. Festivals are about gathering - they insist that we’re better together than we are alone. That real moments of connection and inspiration exist in the spaces between, over a drink or meal or on the dance floor. For Next Wave Festival 2012 we shook things up and created the Day Pass - whole-day, crafted journeys that you can experience with friends. It was an experiment. We invited our community to brave the autumn elements and dive into full days of spectacle, performance, live art and installation punctuated with plenty of discussion, inspiration and parties.

    This is a day in the next wave of contemporary art.
