Next Gen 2014 showcases the work of students who have just completed Year 12 VCE studies in Art, Studio Arts, Design and Technology, Visual Communication and Design and Media. The students are from Government, Catholic and Independent schools mainly from the Ballarat and Grampians region. Art Gallery in Ballarat is supporting local artists by presenting this exhibition.

Next Gen had its genesis in 1995 in the Len Brookman VCE Art Awards exhibition which evolved into the Next Gen VCE Art and Design Exhibition in 2006. Now in its 19th year the exhibition continues to be an important part of the Gallery’s exhibition program and attracts a broad audience of both school students and the general public.

Many local businesses have given  their support by becoming prize donors:
