Mentor in Residence Program
Hosted by Neighbourhood Arts Network
The Mentor in Residence program aims to assist artists in further developing community arts practices by providing mentorship support in career planning, project development, and developing entrepreneurial skills through virtual consultation sessions with industry professionals during a one-on-one online consultation,
Due to COVID-19, many artists have been forced to cancel and postpone event based presentations and exhibitions, causing many barriers for artists in re-designing showcases and event-based artistic programs. In partnership with North York Arts, Neighbourhood Arts Network are pleased to present a mentor in residence program to support artists and arts organizations with the re-designing and reimagining of artistic work.
Spots are limited to one per person/ collective/ organization as we pilot this project. There may be opportunity to schedule multiple sessions with your mentor, depending on the project/support focus. Please speak to your mentor about this during your consultation. As we pilot this program we are aiming to support as many artists as possible.
We are continuing learning how to make digital communications and meetings more accessible. Currently consultations are offered over Zoom and phone. Please let us know if you require ASL interpretation, note taking or another form of accommodation, and we will try our best to support you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with accessibility requests as soon as possible.
