NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal, Gadigal, Dharawal and Dharug peoples, and we pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past and present.
Connor McCool is a Sydney-based maker, artist and musician.
During his time at NIDA, he has developed a passion for woodworking, electronics, metalwork, 3d modelling and 3d printing. More than anything though, Connor enjoys the challenges and problem-solving that comes with prop-making, regardless of the medium.
Building on his previous life experience as a touring musician, Connor has expanded and developed his skills working on NIDA theatrical productions, as well as TV shows and independent theatre.
After NIDA, Connor hopes to make a positive impact on the world with his making skills, creating ecologically sustainable, meaningful, long-lasting objects that bring joy to people’s lives.
