Write on the Money


Grant writing insights for emerging creatives in South Australia

Write on the Money is a free workshop offering handy tips and tricks to emerging South Australian artists, applying for grants with either Carclew, Helpmann Academy or both. This will be a practical, informative session to help you secure the support you need to get your project off the ground. Learn how to summarise your project, respond to criteria, conquer your budget, and make a selection panel sit up in their chair and take notice


  • The crucial elements of Who, What, Where, Why, When and How – and getting to the point.
  • How to define your project, its outcomes and why this needs to happen now.
  • How to calculate the cost of your project and prepare a budget.
  • The ins and outs of support materials.
  • What it means to make your project viable.

A panel of creatives will offer their insights on what it takes to write a successful grant application, and the kinds of glittering opportunities this can unlock.
