NextGen Artist is a NBAF youth arts education program that aims to nurture the dreams, creativity and artistic talents of high school emerging artists of African descent.
The NBAF NextGen Artist Program provides resources and exposure into the industries of film/media, visual arts, and fashion design for students engaged in the program. The program goals include increased presentation skills (written and verbal), improved academic success, an increased appreciation for the arts, and access to pathways to higher education and careers in the arts.
The program provides a structured artistic experience with workshops, classes, lectures, mentoring, business and professional development, and opportunities for competitive scholarships. This transformational experience is designed to support the educational goals of our partner schools and the workforce development based curriculum is curated to recognize and nurture the students' unique talents in diverse creative arts disciplines.
