What is involved?

Mentees are paired with an established art practitioner for one year. The nature of the mentorship is up to each individual mentor. It is an opportunity for skills, knowledge and experience to be passed from a practising established artist to an emerging artist. The mentee is expected to meet with their mentor once a month and attend get-togethers with the 2022/2023 Mentorship cohort. Mentees are also required to participate in an exhibition, alongside their mentor, showcasing the outcomes of their mentorship, as well as an end-of-program evaluation session. This exhibition will be curated by the Curatorial mentee, supported by their mentor.

Key dates
