Creative Development Grants


The Helpmann Academy Creative Stimulus Grants Scheme was developed as a holistic approach to the challenges faced by our community due to the restrictions required to combat COVID-19.

The Creative Stimulus Grants Scheme aims to support emerging creatives at different stages of their career development.

The Creative Development Grants support 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 practices.

The Creative Development Grants support opportunities such as:

  • 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
