Visitors to NIDA Open Day can attend talks by all Head of Course leaders, industry specialists and NIDA alumni to discover what studying at NIDA is all about. There are interactive sessions, guided tours of the campus, demonstrations, free workshops and a foyer full of expert staff sharing their knowledge and passion.

The event focusses on an inclusive environment and the diversity of NIDA’s student cohort and staffing, with information available on support for First Nations and under-represented artists through scholarships, plus financial and cultural assistance.

NIDA alumni will speak to inspire the next generation of students with their stories of experience, hard work and creativity.

NIDA Open Day also provides a unique insight into NIDA’s one-year, intensive Diploma level courses – including Diploma of Musical Theatre, Diploma of Stage and Screen, Diploma of Screen and Media and Diploma of Live Production and Technical Services, with speakers addressing the career opportunities available across the fashion, film, television industry and beyond.
