The research and development phases of Modelling Play have both been supported by the University College London Environment Institute. David Finnigan has been artist-in-residence at the Institute over both 2011 and 2012.

The 2011 creative research phase of the project was supported by a grant from the N.E.D. Foundation.

Modelling Play was in residence at the Battersea Arts Centre in London for a residency in November 2012 and at Arts House in Melbourne in July 2013.

Modelling Play has received financial support from the Australia Council for the Arts Inter-Arts Board.

We are also grateful to Tipping Point UK for their support of this project.

Modelling Play became ‘Best Festival Ever’ in 2014 and has since been performed in the UK, Sweden and Australia. For information on the current touring production of ‘Best Festival Ever’ including current support info, please visit
