Next Wave Festival Kickstart Program Now Open


Apply now to be a part of Next Wave’s professional development course.

Next Wave festival is one of the most exciting festivals for emerging and experimental artists, held biannually in Melbourne – this year’s festival was just brilliant.

Applications for Next Wave Kickstart, Next Wave’s creative and professional development program for young emerging artists, are now open.

Kickstart 2011 provides creative inspiration and development time, a year-long series of artistic and professional development workshops, cash for initial project development, travel subsidies for interstate and regional artists to attend four weekend workshops in Melbourne and ongoing artistic feedback and support.

Curators, directors, collectives and individual artists aged 30 or under as of January 1 2011 may apply.

Applications close on January 17, 2011 and the application pack is available for download on the Next Wave website.
