“Next Fest is not just exploring ideas at the frontier of arts, it’s nurturing the creation of forms, expressions, structures and careers that will be the new generation of artistic life for makers, presenters, and audiences. I’m honored to be part of the conversation, and eager to share in the coming rounds.”
–Fred Child, host of APM’s Performance Today
