The Equity Professional Program

The Equity Foundation hosts more than 100 events a year throughout Australia and New Zealand. The program is developed in close collaboration with performers.

The Equity Foundation's masterclasses are designed to address our members’ need for ongoing professional development and provide rare opportunities to work with leading directors, coaches and casting agents.
Our workshop series is an opportunity to work on specifics, such as acting for the camera, comedy, dancing, voiceovers and accents. Up to 10 members work over a two-hour period with an expert in their field.
In Conversation
As part of the foundation’s In Conversation series, performers are given the opportunity to attend an intimate question and answer session with leading international actors and directors. Sir Ian McKellen, Richard E Grant, Sam Neill, and Cate Blanchett are among those who have participated in the In Conversation events.
Casting Hothouse 
Each year the Equity Foundation hosts a Casting Hothouse, which gives performers a unique opportunity to work with international casting agents, such as CBS TV Studios’ vice president of casting Matt Skrobalak and US feature film casting director Margery Simkin.
Student Days
We know how difficult it can be getting a toehold in the entertainment industry, so each year the Equity Foundation holds an industry day designed to provide graduates with important information and tools to help them on their way to a successful performance career.

Event description:

For most actors our passion guides us, however our inability to activate it can destroy us. Join actor and The HubStudio founder, Oliver Wenn, in a creative workshop and discussion forum on the tools that give the power back and help actors find success on their own terms.

The workshop will cover these six main areas:
Section One: Introduction
Section Two: Thats not a knife. The Australian industry, and where its headed.
Section Three: Authenticity & finding your mojo - mindset & skill set.
Section Four: Its all about me - process not perfection.
Section Five: What’s my project / what’s my plan?
Section Six: You tell me. Lets make next steps.

Successful applicants will be asked to send some brief introductory information so that Oliver can look over before the workshop but it is very easy and straightforward information.
