Festival NEXT 2019

Beirut campus

The Department of Communication Arts is launching its annual Festival NEXT, which will feature lectures, exhibitions, workshops, performances, concerts, screenings, and competitions from March 18 to March 22.

Building on the history of LAU’s International University Theater Festival and continuing its legacy, the Communication Arts Department’s reinvented Festival NEXT strives to create an interdisciplinary space for innovative, avant-garde, and experimental performing and communicative arts. The festival aims to encompass all strands of communication and connect the department and university with Lebanese and Arab schools, universities, performing artists and communication professionals. Festival NEXT is a visionary fusion and artistic outlet that offers opportunities to students and pre-professionals to work with established artists through workshops, lectures, productions, and performances.

The festival will pay tribute to Nidal Al Ashkar in its opening ceremony on March 19 at 7:00 p.m.
