Equity Foundation provides professional development, programmes and initiatives for union members of Equity New Zealand and MEAA Equity (The Australian Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance).
The Equity Foundation hosts more than 100 events a year throughout Australia and New Zealand. The event programme is developed in close collaboration with performers. Events are free of charge for financial members of Equity and include master classes, workshops, panel discussions, casting hot houses, scholarships, on set internships and member networking events. These events are run in person in different locations and also virtually for increased accessibility.
The Equity Foundation strives to build and sustain performers’ careers, recognise artistic excellence, create a diverse and inclusive industry and harness performers’ talent for community programmes.
