Happy Virtual Nextfest!
As part of the changes for Nextfest 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic we are introducing a one-on-one mentorship program where we pair emerging artists with established professional artists.
This will involve one-on-one chats with arts industry professionals where you can ask questions and gain the knowledge you need to take your career to the next level.
Mentorship sessions will take place during Nextfest which is June 4 to June 14 (in some cases the mentorship sessions may happen slightly outside of these dates).
Join us for Nextfest’s first ever Virtual Mentorship program. If you are interested in this type of networking and mentorship, apply using this google form.
Deadline to apply is May 10, 2020.
How will applicants be selected?
We have a limited budget to pay the established professional artists to provide mentorship and are unsure of how many applicants we will receive. So the application process will only be instituted if we have more artists apply than we are able to pay mentors.
If we do need to follow through on evaluation, we will select artists based on their demonstrated need for support as well as supporting artists from an array of disciplines and communities.
