NAVA – Collaborative Mentorship Initiative
Mon December 14
About the program
The Collaborative Mentorship Initiative offers early-career practitioners the unique opportunity to work one-on-one with advising artists and arts workers to inspire confidence and self-awareness, and to build the knowledge, skills and capacity to pursue projects and goals.
This program, to be completed over four months, is based on a mutual mentorship model that provides both the adviser and early-career practitioner space to share ideas and learn from each other.
To acknowledge the contribution of early-career practitioners, they will be paid at a rate of $100/hour for mentoring sessions and check-ins with NAVA in-house support, and an additional $150 for a group induction session.
The aim of the program is to:
- Foster greater confidence, connectivity, access, exchange of ideas and industry experience for both advisers and early-career practitioners.
- Develop a better understanding of best practice in the industry.
- Establish strong networks and skills for both advisers and early-career practitioners.
- Inspire confidence and stronger capacity in early-career practitioners to pursue their upcoming project and goals.
The program comprises of:
- 1 x 1 hour group induction session on February 16, 2021 hosted by NAVA in-house support staff.
- 4 x 1 hour online sessions for both advisers and early-career practitioners, with dates to be organised amongst advisers and early-career practitioners.
- 4 x 30 minute catch-ups hosted by NAVA in-house support staff following each mentorship session.
- Access to mentoring resources and online and technological support.
Advisers and early-career practitioners will be matched based on their practices, ideas, skills, goals, priorities, and the areas they wish to develop as specified in their application.
