News: JADE Fellowship

Friday 25 November 2005

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has established a Fellowship in memory of Jane Attenborough, the Foundation’s Art Manager who died in the Asian tsunami disaster of December 2004. Jane was a Founding Director of Dance UK and in her working life made a distinctive contribution to dance and the arts as a whole.

The first Jane Attenborough Dance in Education (JADE) Fellowship has been awarded to Simon Cooper, a dancer with Rambert Dance Company. The £50,000 award will enable the company to provide Simon with intensive support over two years to help him make the transition from Company dancer into education and community work.
