Creative Boost Grants - Round 1

Applications are now open for the first round of the Helpmann Academy’s 2022 Creative Boost Grants, which support eligible emerging creatives with grants of up to $500.


The Creative Boost Grants have been developed to provide emerging creatives with a quick boost of cash while dealing with the continuing impact of the pandemic on the arts industry.


These funds can be used for activities such as:

  • The purchase, hire or upgrade of technology or equipment, training in new skills that will enable creatives to continue or adapt their practice (such as computer software or programs, cameras and associated equipment, sound equipment, workshops and seminars) 
  • The purchase of materials and tools pertinent to a creative practice (such as paints and brushes, metals, timber, and textiles, printing and framing, materials to create merchandise)
  • Paying for costs associated with their practice (such as studio rental, website hosting fees etc)
  • Building and expanding their audience (e.g. social advertising, creating/evolving an online business, producing online webinars and workshops)
