Since the Mentorship Program’s inception in 2006, Visual Arts Nova Scotia has successfully paired emerging artists with established artists to take part in a 10-month mentorship. The Mentorship Program provides an exceptional opportunity for emerging artists to develop both their creative process and professional skills, thus building the foundation for a successful career in the visual arts. The program also offers established artists an opportunity to pass on their experience, resources, knowledge, and insight. For information on the program visit: visualarts.ns.ca/program/mentorship-program/.

Visual Arts Nova Scotia gratefully acknowledges core funding for the Mentorship Program and exhibition from The Craig Foundation.

The program is also supported by the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, the Halifax Regional Municipality, Canada Council for the Arts, and The Craig Gallery.
