(Lunenburg) – Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS) has been facilitating mentorship for emerging artists for over ten years and will celebrate that anniversary this weekend in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia with a symposium on Mentorship in the Arts. Over the past decade VANS has partnered 29 emerging Nova Scotian artists with established artists in their communities for a year long program. During their partnership each mentor works to foster an understanding of the many things the young artists will need to know while establishing themselves professionally and giving them valuable career advice. Many of the relationships that were forged through this program continue today as the mentees become friends and peers with their former mentors. Each year long program culminates with an exhibition that showcases the works of both mentor and mentee.
The Lunenburg Symposium: Mentorship in the Arts will take place at Lunenburg School of the Arts May 27 – 29, 2016 and will feature workshops on the Economics of Mentorship, Youth Engagement, How to Set Up a Mentorship Program, as well as conversations between past participants of the VANS mentorship program, CARFAC Saskatchewan Mentorship Program, and Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (MAWA) Mentorship Program.
The presenters include: Shawna Dempsey, a well known Winnipeg-based performance artist who is the Co-Executive Director of MAWA; Zachary Gough, an artist who works collaboratively and responsively with other artists, community groups and organizations to promote alternative economic systems; Jaime Black a multidisciplinary artist of mixed Anishnaabe/Cree descent, best known for her internationally recognized installation The REDress Project; Mammalian Diving Reflex, a Toronto collective of artists founded over 20 years ago, who view innovative artistic interventions as a way to trigger generosity and equity across the universe.

The Khyber Centre for the Arts is pleased to announce this special call out for returning students interested in obtaining the position of Summer Programming Assistant.
Application deadline: Friday May 27, 2016
THE KHYBER CENTRE FOR THE ARTS
FIELD OF STUDIES
Interviews will be conducted in person or over the phone May 28-29th, 2016.
The Khyber Centre for the Arts is a non-discriminatory organization and supportive environment whose focus is on fostering critical thought and dialogue through supporting inquiry and experimentation. As many of our staff, members and community are people of diverse backgrounds and experiences, the student must reflect on and work to ensure that the programming will continue to include and better benefit them. As the Khyber works to present exhibitions and events addressing these divergent interests, the student must understand the importance of developing partnerships with local communities and organizations. An understanding and interest of the social, cultural and political significances surrounding these identities will be necessary to perform this position.
