NICA is a national not-for-profit arts training organisation, registered as a cultural organisation and primarily funded by the Australian Government through the Department of
Communications and the Arts. NICA’s courses are accredited by Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.
We need your support to pilot new scholarship opportunities and support all reaches of our circus community, regardless of social or economic circumstances.
• To create better access for those who cannot afford course fees or who face financial hardship while studying under the demands of elite circus.
• To create a scholarship for an Indigenous student to study at NICA.
• To continue to utilise circus as a tool for social change and make a difference to the lives of Indigenous people and young Australians living in regional and remote communities by providing skills and training.
