NextNOW Fest is an arts festival for Terps, by Terps. Co-curated with student groups and on-campus departments, this artistic playground amplifies the voices of intriguing, inventive performing and visual artists from around campus and the country.
Often surprising, sometimes unconventional and always exciting, NextNOW Fest creates an unexpected festival experience at the creative hub of the performing arts at the University of Maryland.
Students and faculty from Bowie State University and the University of Maryland are coming together to create a mural that reflects healing and unity. The artwork is also intended to serve as a reminder of the importance of overcoming hate and violence on campus and in our community. When it is completed, the panels will be split, and displayed at both BSU and UMD, with the hope that healing through art and creative expression can bring the two campuses together.
