Join the Helpmann Academy Community

David McKee AO & Yusuf Hayat

We are incredibly proud of the Helpmann community. Our community bands together to provide emerging creatives with the support they need to bring their ideas to life.

We are thrilled to introduce you to some of the members of our community to see firsthand the effect your support can have on the life of an emerging creative.

Introducing visual artist Yusuf Hayat and a long-term Helpmann supporter, David McKee AO. In 2018 Yusuf undertook Helpmann Academy’s 3-month residency at the prestigious British School at Rome (BSR). After visiting the BSR institute on a holiday in Rome, David and Pam McKee were inspired to support an artist to attend the residency through the Helpmann Academy. Their invaluable support has been ongoing since 2016. Based in one of the world’s most culturally rich cities, the BSR residency provides an emerging artist with an allocated studio space and access to the school’s world-renowned research facilities and artistic community.

We invite you to join our community and become part of an artist’s story.
