The Helpmann Academy is providing an emerging South Australian artist with a 6-month studio residency at George Street Studio, suitable for artists working across sculpture, furniture or mixed media.

One eligible artist will be awarded a rent-free studio space, providing them the critical time, space, support and freedom to both create new work, and develop their career.

Situated within the creative and social city-fringe suburb of Thebarton, George Street Studio thrives on its dynamic, creative and progressive work environment. The strength of its members is their collective knowledge, experience, and facilities that can assist emerging artists to manifest their vision with access to specialised space, machinery and technical skills. Through long-term and sustainable practices, the studio members have an advanced understanding of technical process, materials and suppliers required to advance most artistic visions and projects.

There is a strong sense of camaraderie at the studios and a commitment to emerging artists. Resident artists are also able to access a network of suppliers and services.

Graduates from Helpmann’s visual arts partner institutions, within five years following their final year of study, are eligible to apply. Honours graduates are also eligible to apply providing honours study was undertaken in direct succession following their undergraduate degree, and they are within five years following their final year of honours study.

Helpmann’s visual arts partner institutions are:

  • Adelaide College of the Arts (TAFE SA / Flinders University), Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts)
  • The University of South Australia, Bachelor of Contemporary Art (formerly Bachelor of Visual Arts)
