Helpmann Fellowships


The Helpmann Academy is thrilled to be partnering with The James and Diana Ramsay Foundation to present this wonderful opportunity, open to emerging artists from all of our partner institutions working in visual arts, theatre, dance, music and film.

Valued at up to $20,000 each, the Fellowships will fund projects of significance, supporting early career artists to realise their visions and build sustainable practices, shaping their future and empowering them to transform the cultural landscape. It is intended the Fellowships will enable artists to pursue professional development opportunities overseas or interstate.

The Helpmann Fellowships are made possible through a grant from The James and Diana Ramsay Foundation. The James and Diana Ramsay Foundation fosters excellence in the arts and is committed to supporting high-quality arts programs to encourage a robust arts sector and increase its accessibility.
