We are delighted to announce our partnership with the world’s leading provider of spoken-word entertainment, Audible in 2021.

The partnership will include sponsorship of a termly 18-hour Voice Acting Module which will cover audiobook and drama performance, voice reel surgery to offer actors advice, support and coaching and studio workshops between students and Audible staff to improve their audio skills and knowledge.

Audible will also sponsor two students per term. The sponsorship will be presented to students who require financial assistance and have a specialised interest in audio recording. Please note sponsorship submissions are now closed for this year.

Anthony Mark Barrow, Head of Acting from IDSA Los Angeles, says: “We are incredibly excited about our partnership with Audible, and this very strongly illustrates their commitment to working with diverse voices. IDSA students are an incredible mix of unique performers from all over the world, and we can’t wait to discover what we can create together. Our ethos has always been to create a space for actors from as wide a variety of backgrounds as possible, and we are delighted that Audible have chosen to help us develop the next generation of talent.”

Kevin Addley, Country Manager at Audible UK, says: “Training the next generation of actors in audio entertainment is, of course, close to our heart. We are delighted to partner with Identity School of Acting as we are committed to encouraging diverse voices into the profession and we see really exciting collaborations developing from this partnership.”

As a leading producer of audio entertainment, Audible is committed to constantly innovating in the development of content and has seen a growing interest in audio content from younger audiences. Audible supports actors and actor training across the world.
