Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, The Next Festival of Emerging Artists launched Next Fest Connects with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. The program provides an immediate support system for artists during difficult times. Thanks to a grant from the Heineman Foundation, our workshops continue in the spring of 2021, in the lead-up to our 2021 Festival.
