NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal people. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

We also wish to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across this country's sacred homelands, and in particular, students and other First Nations members of the NIDA community.

Grace Llanwarne

GraceAfter studying at college in Canberra, Grace completed the Diploma of Live Production and Technical Services (DLPTS) at NIDA.

Grace has worked in theatre since her mid-teens when she realised that being a mechanist was something she wanted to pursue. During her DLPTS course she discovered a passion for circus rigging and chose the BFA (Staging) course to learn more about this skill, gain more experience in set building and set up a good foundational work ethic.

After NIDA, Grace looks forward to being able to work in the field that she loves.
