Fostering Australia’s creative future.

From writers, directors, actors, costume designers, sound and lighting technicians, filmmakers and makeup artists, our skilled creative leaders are making their mark across the world. Your generous and thoughtful bequest will enable NIDA, a renowned not-for-profit education and training institute for the performing arts, to continue delivering its internationally recognised education and training programs.
