What is the FEATHR Fourth Wall Fund?
Interior design brand FEATHR is offering $5000 in products to support theatrical stage and set design at colleges and universities.
Tom, Anne & Oli, the founders of FEATHR, all have personal experience of, and love for, creating for the stage and screen. We know how complex and financially challenging it can be to put on a show. To help make things a little easier for those involved in student theatre, we are pleased to offer a yearly fund of $5000 worth of FEATHR products for set decoration. We hope this will encourage more people to develop plays and shows, along with making it easier for producers to tick one thing off their (long) to-do list.

Anyone student staging a play or show at a higher education college or university in the United Kingdom, United States or the European Union. Individuals and or student theatre groups can apply. Recent graduates are also able to apply. Applicants must be aged 18 or over.
What is available through the fund?
Free FEATHR products for set decoration. These include wallpaper, fabrics and cushions from our range of over 150 designs. Every year, $5000 worth of FEATHR products will be available for set decoration in student plays. Products will be shipped free to the USA, UK or EU.
