Creative Boost Grants Round 1 Recipients

8 April 2021

The Helpmann Academy has awarded 12 emerging creatives from a range of disciplines with 2021 Creative Boost Grants.

Adapted from the 2020 Creative Relief Fund Grants, the Creative Boost Grants will be offered over 2 rounds in 2021 and support creatives with grants of up to $1,000.

The funds are designed to enable eligible creatives to purchase essential services or pay immediate costs, develop small projects, build digital skills, develop their audience, and support them to continue their creative practice.

Some of the needs met through round 1 of the Creative Boost Grants include the purchase of new equipment, travel expenses for interstate shows, gallery hire fees, short course fees and website creation.

Congratulations to all the recipients.

The Creative Boost Grants are generously funded by John Phillips.
