Often as actors we take for granted the institutions who have helped build and house our careers. This time though we ask two of the industry’s most important figures on the history of what we see today; who built NIDA, why was the Sydney Theatre Company started, what was Mel Gibson really like, who started The Elizabethan Theatre Trust, what came before Belvior, and who funded the Griffin Theatre? To seek the future we must know the past. This is your opportunity. Come join us.






Join us for our latest Hub X Talks For Actors, where we shine a spotlight on the versatile actor-turned-producer, Blake Northfield. We invite you to explore the full spectrum of Blake’s journey, tracing his evolution from the familiar shores of acting on Home & Away to his current place in dynamic and often challenging world of film production, driven by his production company, Bronte Pictures.






More than ever there are more ways to create the career as an actor. But do we even know what it means if we wanted to start a business and what that could look like as an actor? Dive into not only your bio, cv, headshot and showreel, but the OTHER aspects that can excel your career: creating goals, audition routines, communication, what networking means, industry awareness and the value of an online presence. There’s also that chat about what you can do freelance and gaining representation.
