Feilman Foundation Pathways to Excellence

Scholarship Program

The Feilman Foundation was established in 1976 by Mrs Ethel Feilman to make donations to causes which were important to her family and in recent times has grown with the addition of the estates of Margaret and Patricia Feilman.

In recognition of the valuable role that STRUT plays in dance sector development, the Feilman Foundation is generously sponsoring STRUT to provide avenues of access to the 2018 Master workshop series for recent graduates transitioning out of tertiary academies.

This will take the form of scholarships to cover workshop fees, which we understand can be a struggle for many students who are just stepping into the industry. At this stage, this opportunity is limited to graduates of West Australian or Victorian academies.

In 2018, scholarships will be available across the STRUT international workshop program - Punchdrunk’s Maxine Doyle (UK), Crystal Pite (CA) and Hofesh Shechter (UK/IS) and our Collaborations Program with Australian greats Nicola Gunn and Jo Lloyd.

These are some of the most visionary and pertinent choreographic artists working on the world stage today. Usually quarantined to major dance organisations, this training and repertory is now available to the independent dance sector, exclusively through STRUT.
STRUT thanks the Feilman Foundation for their generous support.
