The Clarice’s annual NextNOW Fest is an inspiring arts experience that celebrates imagination, creativity and community. By amplifying the voices of intriguing, inventive artists from around campus and our community, NextNOW Fest creates a forward-looking microcosm where art transforms our future and connects us all.
NextNOW Fest is a signature event in University of Maryland's Arts for All initiative, which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time. In addition to our student, academic and touring arts lineup at The Clarice, we’re thrilled to continue partnerships with student-led groups, academic departments and community organizations to hold the festival at sites throughout campus and into College Park!
