The call for applications is out for the 2018-19 Mentorship Program!
The VANS Mentorship Program is designed to support the individual artistic methods and professional ambitions of emerging artists in Nova Scotia by providing access to the skills and experience of selected mentors. Basing its structure on similar pioneer programs such as CARFAC Saskatchewan’s Visual Arts Mentorship Program and the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia’s Mentorship Program, the VANS Mentorship Program provides an exceptional opportunity for emerging artists to develop both their creative process and professional skills, thus building the foundation for a successful career in the visual arts. As a secondary outcome, the program offers established artists an opportunity to pass on their experience, resources, knowledge, and insight.
Want more info? There will be an info session on Wednesday, June 27, 6pm at Visual Arts Nova Scotia, 1113 Marginal Road, Halifax. Skype info sessions will be scheduled for those outside of HRM. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment.
Applications for the 2018-19 Mentorship Program are currently being accepted. The deadline for applications is 9:30am on Monday, July 16, 2018. See the Mentorship Program page for more details.
