Creating unique experiences for AcA’s next generation of audiences
Apply to be a NXT Series artist
With the NXT series, AcA will partner with regional performing artists often at the outset of their careers. The series aims to support the growth of local performing artists creating significant new work in their discipline. NXT aims to bring a new audience into the AcA, and expose our members to unique artistic experiences from around Acadiana.
By applying to this program, AcA is offering the artist an opportunity to expand their work beyond the setting of a bar or club. The artist will have access to AcA’s James Devin Moncus Theater, state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment, and the ability to record the performance for future use. This is a chance for the artist to expand their vision in a state-of-the-art environment that gives the opportunity to produce an elevated experience with potential to bring the performance beyond Acadiana.
Ticket split 80/20, 80% going to artist (with first $500 to AcA to cover expenses)
With support from the AcA, the performer is responsible for marketing their own show. With this model the more the artist can get the word out, the more money they will make.
The series will consist of 2-4 acts a year
Application will close on July 10, 2023
Applicants will be contacted on July 17, 2023
