Carney Associates

It’s important that our students get exposure to talent from across the entertainment sector. That’s the reason we love working with associate artists and we couldn’t do what we do without them. Each term we offer one-off, bespoke workshops with writers, producers, voice coaches, actors and more. They help us nurture, develop and support our talent. Meet some of our associates below.
