Announcing our 2023 Mentorship Recipients!
We’re thrilled to start the year by supporting this talented group of local artists at various stages in their careers, working in a variety of artistic disciplines. Our program launched this Winter and we received an overwhelming response with applications from across the city. 15 artists were selected and paired with a mentor of their choosing, and 2 artists will be engaging in a co-mentorship project. Follow us on Instagram as we spotlight these artists in the coming weeks! Get to know them and learn about their explorations as they deepen their creative practices. Funded by the Government of Canada, The Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund.
