Hi! My name Ellen Chorley and I am the current High School Curator for Nextfest,Theatre Network’s Emerging Artist Festival taking place June 4-14, 2015.
NEXTFEST is an multi-displinary emerging artist festival that was founded by Edmonton’s Theatre Network and has been running in Edmonton for twenty years. In addition to Nextfest, the festival runs NEXTNextfest, a high school festival that runs at the Living Room Playhouse (recently re-named to the Mercury Theatre) and features performances and art created by high school students.
