HSG New Award Sponsorship

Helpmann Academy

“HSG has long been a supporter of the Helpmann Academy, and for more than 12 years have contributed to a Travelling Scholarship with a cash contribution in partnership with the Friends of Helpmann to a total of $5,000.
In 2017 HSG have expanded this contribution to support a new Post Graduate Award for Helpmann Academy, in partnership with the University of South Australia forming The Hill Smith Gallery / University of South Australia Postgraduate Award ($10,000 cash).

In its inaugural year, PhD Candidate Tom Moore was thrilled to win The Hill Smith Gallery/University of South Australia Postgraduate Award. The Award will make a significant difference in furthering Tom's career as he goes on to forge a national and international career – it will be very rewarding for us to view his progress in an already significantly successful career as a glass artist.
