Performance Lab #21: Manifesting Mentorship with Cynthia Jimenez-Hicks
Manifesting Mentorship. In an industry full of unknowns and heartaches - manifesting your artistic path through mentorship.
In this session with Cynthia we'll take time to reflect on WHAT makes you the artist you are, WHO influenced your artistry, HOW you want to see your artistic journey grow, and WHERE you are inspired to give back to your community. Take a moment to breathe, contemplate on past mentors, consider what mentors are missing in your life. Through a guided exercise we will aim to make these abstract notions into a concrete individual plan.
This session is open to ALL artists with any experience from any discipline.
