Mentor in Residence

Many artists have been forced to cancel and postpone event based presentations, exhibitions, and other activities essential to their professional practices as a result of COVID-19. In partnership with North York Artswe present a digital Mentor in Residence program to support the re-desiging and reimagining of artistic work.

The Mentor in Residence program assists artists with developing community arts practices by providing mentorship support in career planning, project development and entrepreneurial skills through virtual consultation sessions with industry professionals.

Mentor meetings are being delivered over Zoom and/or phone calls while we observe social distancing. Let us know if there is a diffeent method of technology that works best for you when you connect with your mentor. You can note your preferred method of communication and any accomodation requests when you register through the link below.

After reviewing available mentors on the Meet the Mentors page, you can sign up through the Registration form.

Eligiblity: Toronto-based professional artists and/or arts workers. 

This program is free to access. 

The Mentor in Residence Program, part of the COVID-19 Response Effort Initiatives of Toronto Arts Foundation, has been made possible by generous contributions from The Donner Canadian Foundation and Hermes Canada.
