MGCfutures welcomes collaborations and regularly partners with organisations to create unique opportunities for bursary recipients

Previous collaborations include:

The Stephanie Arditti Bursary

In 2019 a new bursary was created in memory of award-winning Costume Supervisor Stephanie Arditti, who sadly died the previous year. Stephanie worked extensively with the National Theatre, the RSC and in the West End with MGC. She was passionate about her work and was keen to support and mentor the next generation of costumiers.

This special bursary, gifted by designer Christopher Oram, is intended to support anyone working in any aspect of theatrical costuming, but it is specifically aimed at those wishing to develop their career as a Costume Supervisor.

The Nicole Kidman Bursary 

This award has been gifted by Nicole Kidman, a Patron of MGCfutures, and is designed to assist an emerging female director, producer or writer. The bursary highlights the important insight and creativity that women bring to theatre and it is awarded to artists who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to their chosen field.

To date, her bursary has supported:
