Proudly supported by the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation and valued at up to $10,000, the Creative Investment Fellowships sit within Helpmann Academy’s Creative Stimulus Scheme and were created to assist emerging creatives with larger projects and professional development programs as they forge beyond the challenges of 2020 and further their creative practice.

The Creative Investment Fellowships will fund opportunities of significance, unique to the applicant, that will develop their artistic practice in meaningful and vital ways, empowering them to take the next step in their career development.

Individual artists or collectives have the opportunity to undertake tailored professional development programs, larger scale projects, or a combination of both. A self-directed program of activities may include residencies, specialist training, long-term workshops and internships with recognised institutions or professional practitioners. Large scale projects may stand alone or encompass the outcomes and learnings of the professional development program; these projects can include the development of new work, the exhibition or performance of this work, touring, recording, or activity to development new markets and audiences.
