Creative Manitoba: Careers in the Arts Youth and Young Adult Mentorship, Application Deadline July 6

About: Youth and young adults ages 19-29, residing in Winnipeg or within 50 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 April.

Deadline: Applications for the 2018-2019 placement will be accepted now until July 6, 2018.

Fees: 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:

  1. 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.
  2. A youth may apply without a specific mentor in mind, and if selected, Creative Manitoba will make their best effort to find an appropriate mentor.

A mentor may express their availability and interest by emailing jan@creativemanitoba.ca with a CV or résumé and a cover letter outlining their area of expertise.
