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.


Corporate Sponsorship

By partnering with NIDA, your business receives a valuable bespoke marketing opportunity, as you enjoy the benefits of being associated with one of Australia’s most well-regarded arts institutions. Not only that, but you will be supporting the next generation of talented arts practitioners.

Companies can sponsor a particular program or event, or support a range of activities available at NIDA. Any of these options will provide businesses with tangible benefits and the value of being associated with NIDA’s iconic brand.

Through our corporate sponsorships, we seek to meet the long-term needs of students in key areas while supporting the strategic objectives of our partners. We welcome the chance to develop tailored partnerships that achieve specific outcomes.
