Experience Opportunity

New Earth Academy

New Earth Academy provides FREE specialist training and opportunities in the performing arts for British East and South East Asians* (BESEA) aged 18+ living in the UK. The only programme of its kind in the UK, our courses are designed for those with an interest in developing their performance skills and engagement with live theatre.

Initially a week-long acting summer school based in London, the Academy has grown over its 14 years to encompass a range of disciplines and locations. New Earth Academy plays a key role in addressing the under representation of BESEA artists on UK stages and screens as well as behind the scenes by providing a safe and supportive environment to gain access to professional training, develop new skills, join creative networks and engage with industry professionals.

Our 2024 Academy courses include week long Performers Academies in London, Leeds and Birmingham, a UK wide online Writers Academy, a week long Off Stage Academy Plus for those interested in technical theatre and a London based Performers Academy Plus for those with previous performance experience and training.
