Next Generation Showcase
Inviting Applications for New Faces
Each year at Next Generation Showcase, we provide an opportunity for recent grads from training programs outside of our regularly participating programs to participate as NEW FACES.

We are particularly interested in applications from artists who may not meet the criteria of being a recent graduate, but have faced historical and/or systemic barriers to access this type of opportunity.
