The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) is Australia’s leading centre for education and training in the performing arts. Since 1958, NIDA has educated students in performance and production for theatre, film and television, and today our programs range from degrees to open short courses, including holiday programs and corporate training.
We are a powerhouse for Australia’s creative sector, recognised for our world-class approach to dramatic arts education and our practical training philosophy. This hands-on focus has laid solid foundations for our sought-after graduates who are currently working on stage, on screen and behind the scenes all over the world.
NIDA is continually raising funds from individuals and organisations to provide teaching resources and training opportunities for students and to ensure all Australians can access the training we offer. Our supporters help us invest further in projects and resources to give our students an exceptional creative education that nurtures their talent.
