NWS BLUE Projects


During the 2023-24 season, NWS Fellows and alumni are participating in NWS BLUE projects. Standing for Build, Learn, Understand and Experiment, NWS’s BLUE program is a combination of leadership and entrepreneurship training and hands-on experimentation that provides NWS Fellows and alumni with a comprehensive skill set to complement their musical training. 

NWS BLUE projects allow all Fellows and selected alumni to pursue musical activism based on their personal interests with their own original initiatives, from concept to execution. These special projects guide their continued development, while demonstrating music's ability to have a positive impact on the community, and benefiting South Florida programs and businesses. The selected alumni projects for 2023-24 will receive support and mentorship virtually as they execute their entrepreneurial endeavors around the globe.

The impacts and value of the unique NWS BLUE program are currently being studied as part of a long-term research project on sustainable entrepreneurship in the performing arts supported by NEA Research Labs: The Arts, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation. 


2023-24 NWS BLUE projects will be announced in Fall 2023.


NWS BLUE projects are made possible with support from the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation and NWS’s Fund for New Ventures. If you have any more questions, please Contact Us today.
