Youth and young adults ages 19-29, residing in Winnipeg or within 75 km, can be mentored in any artistic discipline–creative, administrative, or technical. Within the chosen artistic area, the program’s aim is to offer structured one-on-one tutelage from a recognized mentor, networking opportunities within the industry, volunteer work experience and development of essential skills and knowledge of the arts and cultural sector. The program runs over 7 months, from late September through May.
Participants selected for this program will be required to become Creative Manitoba members at a cost of $15-$20.
Mentors receive an honourarium of $2,000.
Ways to participate:
- Mentor and mentee may apply as a team, with the support of a third-party nominator. For the year of the proposed pairing, the youth cannot be a registered student or an employee of the mentor. The mentee is responsible for preparing and submitting the application on behalf of the proposed mentorship pair.
- A mentee may apply without a specific mentor in mind, and if selected, Creative Manitoba will make their best effort to match the youth with an appropriate mentor. Priority may be given to applications with mentors attached.
- A mentor may express their availability and interest by emailing jan[at]creativemanitoba.ca with a CV or résumé and a cover letter outlining their area of expertise.
