Resilience Programme: Mentee Workshops
Posted by CHARTS
The Mentor / Mentee strand of the Resilience Programme can support you in building ambitious future plans through new ways of working and having the time/space for reflection.
You can take part in two free Mentee Workshops in May to help support you in developing your future goals and your Mentee application
Aimed at makers looking to regroup after the disruption of last year, the Mentor/Mentee Strand can support you in building ambitious future plans through new ways of working and having the time/space for reflection. You will develop confidence and resilience in your creative and business practice through both the Mentee Workshops and the Mentor/Mentee Strand.
Applications for Mentees will officially open on Thursday 6 May 2021. We're looking for makers who have at least 2-3 years’ experience in their craft career and are interested in being mentored by a craft and/or creative industry professional. Selected Mentees will be paid a fee to enable them to take time out of their practice.
Full information about the Mentee application process is in the Application Pack & Guidance notes (opens PDF download).
The Mentee Workshops are designed to help you identify how mentoring can help you achieve your goals. We will introduce the key principles of mentoring and share a range of visual tools that can be used to transform goals into a clear plan of action.
These workshops are designed to give you the time and space to consider the direction you would like to take your making practice. They will help prepare you for making an application for Mentee support via the Programme if you wish, however as a stand-alone workshop it will provide useful ways of thinking about your professional development.
