Acting school National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) is one of four major arts companies struggling to survive that will share $9 million in funding from the federal government’s $35 million Sustainability Fund. The Fund was announced in June as part of the federal government’s $250 million arts rescue package. The Melbourne Art Foundation, Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra are the other three arts companies that will share the $9 million, while Mel Gibson and Cate Blanchett are two of NIDA’s better-known alumni.
