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.


Training & Education

NIDA is Australia’s leading institution for arts and entertainment, fostering the future of Australian and international creative talent. We are committed to providing the highest quality education and resources to our students, to help them develop new and innovative works.

By supporting NIDA through the Education & Training Fund, you will be providing resources to students studying in our higher education courses – Bachelor and Masters of Fine Arts. Your donation will assist us in ensuring students have access to globally-renowned educators, cutting-edge equipment, and a variety of opportunities to learn and grow.

What is the Training & Education Fund?

The Training & Education fund:

  • helps make the Student Production seasons possible every year.
  • supports NIDA to invite local and international artists, directors and teachers to work with our students.
  • provides access to the highest quality materials and modern technology so that students can explore and realise complex ideas.

Your donation will help students develop their skills further, and bring them closer to becoming future stars on the stage and behind the scenes.
