The NIDA MFA in Cultural Leadership is designed specifically for those who have active roles and responsibilities in the cultural sector and who aspire to facilitate resilient, new leadership models to create a sustainable and diverse future in which culture plays a transformative role.

Now in its fourth year, the Cultural Leadership course is a part-time program over 27 months – we have 20 graduates and 25 current students from around Australia who are working in the performing arts, visual arts, libraries, local government, festivals, archives, museums and independent practice. 

NIDA is seeking applications from those interested in undertaking the course in 2020 – you can find more information on the course here:

Karilyn Brown, Course Leader, will be in Darwin to hold an Information Session on the Cultural Leadership course on Tuesday 20 August, 4.00-6.00pm at the Darwin Civic Centre.  You can register your interest in attending the session here:
