Youth and young adults, ages 19 – 29, can apply now until July 6, 2018 to be men­tored in any artis­tic dis­ci­pline; in cre­ative, admin­is­tra­tive or tech­ni­cal cat­e­gories. Facil­i­tat­ed by Cre­ative Man­i­to­ba, the annu­al 7 month pro­gram is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to receive men­tor­ship from a rec­og­nized professional.

I feel that my expe­ri­ence with the Cre­ative Man­i­to­ba Men­tor­ship Pro­gram, and espe­cial­ly, with my men­tor was essen­tial to fur­ther under­stand­ing my field, but also with con­nect­ing me with peo­ple who are doing inter­est­ing things in this com­mu­ni­ty and around the world,” says Math­ew Lacosse, visu­al artist and cura­tor in Win­nipeg, men­tored by Jenifer Papararo, Direc­tor of Plug In Insti­tute of Con­tem­po­rary Art, 2017 – 18. I would high­ly rec­om­mend the program.”

Par­tic­i­pants who com­plete this pro­gram are almost unan­i­mous in their praise for the lifechang­ing effect it has on their career tra­jec­to­ries and pro­fes­sion­al rela­tion­ships,” says Men­tor­ship Pro­grams Man­ag­er, Jan Skene.

Men­tors are also pas­sion­ate about the pro­gram, for their abil­i­ty to pass on knowl­edge, skills, resources, and oppor­tu­ni­ties to their mentee. The men­tor­ship pro­gram was a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to share my expe­ri­ences with two amaz­ing up and com­ing artists. I wish I had access to this pro­gram 15 years ago when I was get­ting start­ed,” says Matt Peters, musi­cian of Roy­al Canoe and men­tor to Janell Bere­zows­ki, 2017 – 18.

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.
