Thank you to everyone who came to NextNOW Fest! You came, you danced and you experienced the future of the arts through two days of nonstop music, theatre and dance performances and immersive, technology-driven installations by artists from around campus and the country. Check out photos from the event (and tag yourself!).
NextNOW Fest is the university’s creative welcome and welcome back to new and returning students, as well as an open invitation to our friends and community. The multi-day, multi-arts festival of fun and discovery features music, theater and dance performances, as well as immersive, technology-driven installations by artists from around campus and the country. NextNOW Fest nurtures and sustains our student and alumni artists through performance opportunities and the Alumni Commissioning Project. NextNOW Fest provides an exciting environment for students to build community, socialize with each other and engage with the arts on campus at the beginning of the school year. By offering memorable artistic experiences for students, The Clarice hopes to inspire involvement in creativity and the arts throughout their time at UMD and beyond, regardless of their major or focus of study.
