The School for the Creative Economy is hosting another 3 Open Days this year. The Open Days, always held on Saturdays are a great opportunity for prospective students and parents to witness and understand the various courses AFDA has to offer, along with meet our brilliant new staff who recently joined the team.
While AFDA originally held the title The School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance, due to the institution’s expansion and a broader scope of programme offers we have re-positioned ourselves as AFDA: the school for the creative economy.
