Mentors will supply participants with knowledge, inspiration and networks that can provide the necessary means to grow as an artist.

The ArtEx mentors will also provide advice in relation to the participants' professions based on their own experiences. Mentor and participant will meet regularly throughout the duration of the programme, and will also be available for sparring sessions inbetween meetings.

Mentor expertise

Each ArtEx participant will be assigned a mentor from a chosen field. The mentor will have industry gravitas and a professional network, along with the means to aid the participant with important steps to further their careers. This includes advice and guidance, yet also important introductions to potential partners and/or future employers.
