Schools Inclusion Program

We believe every West Australian child should have the opportunity to engage with the performing arts to help them learn, grow and become positive forces in their communities.

Unfortunately, due to distance, cost, or some other disadvantage some young people don’t have access to these life-changing experiences.

The Schools Inclusion Program was created by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre and is made possible through the generosity of the Feilman Foundation and Fremantle Ports.

Feilman Foundation | Schools Inclusion Program

In 2019 through our program we’ll offer subsidised ticketing and bussing to schools and students experiencing disadvantage in order to attend a performance as part of our 2019 Schools Program.

This program is open to any Perth metro school, that can demonstrate a need for, or benefit from, access to a Spare Parts Puppet Theatre performance as part of their learning experiences.
