CREATE, COLLABORATE, CONNECT

NEXT has supported 19 paid fellowships who have engaged 238 emerging artists in creating new work. Here’s what Fellows have appreciated:

“NEXT is important for the arts because young artists need to see how art institutions are working and to understand where they came from to be able to move forward and create our own art more effectively.”
-Vicki, Council Member 2016-2018 and Digital Producer Consultant

“…I most appreciated that everyone got to have a voice in this group.”
-Devan, Council Member 2017-2018

“NEXT has informed me what’s really important about storytelling.”
-Chelsea, Council Member 2016-2017 and Actor in 2018

“I think trying to figure out your identity within your community and being able to incorporate art within that, it helps me to figure out who I am.”
-Daphna, Council Member 2016-2018 and now JWT Artistic Associate

“In the arts so often our peers are our competitors, here it was so refreshing they were my collaborators”
-Sarah, Council Member 2017-2018
