Creative Development Fund
HELPMANN ACADEMY CREATIVE STIMULUS GRANTS SCHEME
Generously supported by a group of philanthropic partners and donors and Arts South Australia, the Helpmann Academy Creative Stimulus Grants Scheme has been developed as a holistic approach to the challenges faced by emerging creatives brought on by the restrictions needed to combat COVID-19.
The four-part program aims to support artists at different stages and in different financial positions, casting a wide net of support of up to $200,000.
The second stage in this scheme is the Creative Development Fund, which supports eligible emerging creatives with grants of up to $3,000 to kickstart new projects, research and develop ideas/new works or build skills, markets and creative practice.
Funding is designed to support projects over the next 12-months, and can include:
- The creation or realisation of new work
- Research & development of new ideas
- Developing new skills
- A creative or business mentorship
- Professional development programs
- Graduation activities or showcases of eligible final year groups
