Reach for dizzying heights

Inspiration comes from everything

Be what's N&XT

N&XT is an incubator and nest for new & experimental work in Nashville, TN. Through community, resources, workshops, events, and collaboration we create new experiences with and for the audience of our city.

N&XT Lab is once a month in Germantown. This event is an opportunity for artists to bring a piece to an audience that is open to new or experimental work. For writers it is an opportunity to hear fresh new work aloud by actors. For performers it is an opportunity to participate in work in the early stages of development. For audiences is a peek behind the curtain of something new as it is happening.

N&XT is not only for performance artists
our very foundation is collaboration

All artists are welcome to attend all events and contribute in hopes that painters will reach out to musicians, and writers to dancers, and sculptors to storytellers. The focus is connecting artists to other artists to inspire what's N&XT in Nashville.
