Prime Minister, the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP today opened the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) Graduate School which provides a much needed 'creative and cultural hub' for mid-career and upskilling artists.

The Graduate School will lead Australia into a new era of training in performing arts ensuring we remain productive, creative and competitive in a global market.

The Australian Government provided $6.8 million in capital works funding to NIDA, which included support for the Graduate School. This funding was complemented by business and philanthropic support leveraged by NIDA.

More information about NIDA can be found on the NIDA website.
