Australia’s leading dramatic arts institution, the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) will host a virtual open day in June.

During the open day, participants will have access to campus walkthroughs, exclusive footage, live activities, and alumni guests.

“NIDA usually welcomes over 2000 visitors to its Kensington campus for its yearly open day,” said NIDA CEO Liz Hughes. This year, people all over the world will be able to join in to explore potential pathways to a career in the performing arts.

NIDA is recognised as one of the top five acting schools, amongst New York’s Julliard School, and Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University. NIDA graduates have amassed worldwide success in the dramatic arts, with alumni including Cate Blanchett, Baz Lurhmann, and Remy Hii.

Isaac Barron, a successful applicant for NIDA’s 2019 intake said, “When I found out I got into NIDA, I think that was the most adrenaline I’ve ever felt.”

NIDA’s intensive and practice based education is directly relevant to both performing and screen industries, with specialists leading masterclass modules and students gaining hands on industry experience.

Members of the community may also book a spot for a free NIDA online workshop with classes on improvisation, script analysis, and television presenting.
