EMPOWERING SOUTH AUSTRALIA'S MOST PROMISING EMERGING CREATIVES TO REALISE THEIR VISIONS AND BUILD SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES

The Helpmann Academy is the only organisation of its kind in Australia. We empower South Australia’s most promising emerging creatives to realise their visions and build sustainable practices. We provide professional development opportunities including grants and awards, fellowships, mentorships, masterclasses and seminars, advisory services and international artist residencies, all tailored specifically for South Australia’s higher education students, graduates and emerging artists.

The Helpmann Academy is a unique collaborative partnership, unifying the skills and resources of the state’s universities and TAFE SA. Since 1994 the Helpmann Academy has been supporting emerging artists, promoting South Australia as a centre for excellence in creative education, and contributing to the artistic community of the state.
