Atlantic Acting School Virtual Scholarship 2023 – Applications now open!

By 8 November 2022 November 18th, 2022 Announcements

The Equity Foundation is thrilled to be collaborating once again with the Atlantic Acting School in New York to offer one Australian Equity member and one New Zealand Equity member the opportunity to hone their craft with an online scholarship in 2023.

This five-month program (valued at $US7,950) is tailored to the ambitious actor eager to broaden their network and their creative mind. Inherent in the culture of the Atlantic Acting School, and ubiquitous in the curriculum, is training in the professional habits and discipline demanded by the collaborative nature of this creative work.

Classes take place February 15 – June 8, 2023, every Wed/Thurs/Friday 9am-1.30pm AEST or 11am-3.30pm NZ time.

Over the course of three concentrated five-week trimesters, students will develop three distinct portfolio pieces – a self-scripted solo project, a film project, and a collaborative group project.

Rooted in multicultural perspectives on performance methodology, this remote program draws from Atlantic Acting School and Atlantic Theater Company’s broad and diverse pool of working artists – from NY to LA, Argentina, Australia, London, and beyond!
