Careers in the Arts Youth and Young Adult Mentorship

Creative Manitoba’s Careers in the Arts youth and young adult mentorship programs provide opportunities for youth and young adults to be exposed to careers in arts and culture. Participants are mentored by professionals working in an arts or cultural career through group workshops, individual consultation, volunteer work experience and participation in career development workshops. Careers in the Arts Mentorship Programming is made possible by the Province of Manitoba.

Creative Manitoba pledges to make best efforts to prioritize opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds or from equity-seeking individuals and communities, with the goal of 50% of programs holding space for participants who identify as IBPOC or from equity seeking groups.

We currently offer three streams of mentorship:

1. Individual mentorships (ages 19-29 residents of Winnipeg and surrounding area) Professional mentorship pairs work on a 7-month custom mentorship program. APPLICATION WINDOW IS NOW CLOSED for the 2020/21 Program – 2020/21 program roster
