Next Wave

The Abbotsford Convent partners with other arts and cultural organisations, festivals and events to develop artistic practice, expand our public programs, attract diverse audiences and create new conversations and thought-provoking experiences for everyone to enjoy at the Convent.

The Convent is proud to be a Festival Partner with Next Wave Festival – Australia’s leading platform for a new generation of artists taking creative risks.

Next Wave’s learning programs and biennial festival reflects a commitment to social and cultural diversity, environmental sustainability and inclusion – values that the Abbotsford Convent shares. We look forward to hosting more events, works and exhibitions showcasing new generation talent with Next Wave into the future.

If you’re an arts organisation, or an educational organisation with an arts and cultural focus, and believe that you have a program suited to a partnership or collaboration with the Convent, please feel free to get in touch with the ACF Producer, Natalie Smith.
