The NXT LVL x She Shreds J20 Party at PICA was the place to be Saturday night. The 10,000-square foot performance space was full of booths selling raffle tickets and merch, with projections on every wall and hundreds of attendees who didn’t shy away from bringing looks. —Portland Mercury

NXT LVL is back at PICA bringing another epic party for social justice back to Portland. In January, they brought some of the West Coast’s most exciting musicians for an all night dance party to raise money and bring awareness. They’ll be bringing that same energy and same mission to TBA—their surprise line-up will be one you won’t want to miss.

NXT LVL is a collective that has created a social justice platform to incite change by galvanizing people to action through parties, events, and social connection. Each NXT LVL event is carefully curated to center and amplify WOC/POC/QTPOC/LGBTQIA2S+ voices and causes.

NXT LVL involves the communities in which they work, to benefit as integral collaborators in the process. They prioritize creating safe spaces for all those who attend their events, and strive to provide fair compensation for folks who contribute their skills, time, and energy to make these events possible. NXT LVL recognizes and celebrates the opportunity and ability to shine light on and uplift communities, while fostering a supported vision for social activism fundraising.
