SEED Residencies

Apply Now!

Since 2007, STRUT’s SEED Residencies have offered choreographers opportunities to explore new concepts and begin new artistic projects.

These residencies offer financial and administrative resources to choreographers so that they can really knuckle down into a new process. Many SEED recipients have gone on receive further support and develop their SEEDs into full evening works.

Selection is by formal application to be reviewed by an independent panel of industry experts and stakeholders.


Applications for the 2020 SEED Residency program are now open!

All details can be found in the application pack, which you can download at the bottom of this page. Applications are due Friday 9 August. Please note that you must be a current STRUT Member to apply for this opportunity. Renew your STRUT membership HERE.
