The Helpmann Academy model is unique. No other group in Australia provides such valuable and practical assistance to emerging artists across all creative disciplines and from multiple institutions. 
 
Since 1994, the Helpmann Academy has assisted more than 5,000 emerging artists support their own work, enter their professions with confidence and go on to make strong contributions to South Australia’s community, economy and identity.
 
The Helpmann Academy fosters collaboration between art forms and maintains strong relationships with its partner schools. By creating opportunities via grants, awards, exhibitions, professional mentorships, visiting artists, publicity services and international residency programs, Helpmann is committed to strengthening South Australia as a centre of excellence in creative education.
