Careers in the Arts Professional Mentorship Program

Hosted by Creative Manitoba

In the Careers in the Arts Professional Mentorship Program mentees choose a professional mentor to pair with for the 7-month mentorship program (October 1st – April 29th for the 2021/22 program year). It is open to mentees age 19-29 who are residents of Winnipeg, .

This unique mentorship program is catered to the mentee in their specific artistic discipline (creative, administrative or technical) and offers structured one-on-one tutelage from their chosen mentor, assistance and guidance for individual projects and work, volunteer and connection opportunities set up by the mentor, as well as the rare opportunity to meet and share across disciplines with the full group of pairs in the program in monthly Mentorship Monday Share Nights.

It aims to build a connected relationship between the pair, working with a custom designed program plan created by them. This can include: work on specific projects, help/guidance in areas of struggle, working towards specific career goals, gaining specific skills, important conversations and support in career decisions, shadowing, providing opportunities to connect with others in the industry and much more! *please note – for the year of the proposed pairing (2021-22), the mentee cannot be a registered student or an employee of the mentor. Contact program director for details.

Deadline: August 13
