The successful applicants will be paired with an established arts practitioner. The nature of the mentorship is up to each individual mentor. It is an opportunity for skills, knowledge and experience to be passed from practicing established arts workers to an emerging arts worker to support the development of an exhibition program.
The mentee is expected to meet with their mentor a minimum of six times over the 2022/2023 mentorship.
The mentee is expected to attend a fortnightly 30 minute check in (via zoom) with Project Coordinator, Rebecca Elmes from Moyne Shire Council.
Mentees are required to develop and present an online exhibition program (two exhibitions) in the Moyne Virtual Gallery over the 2022/2023 mentorship.
Mentees may be required to participate in public presentations. This will be a fast paced role with inflexible timelines.
The successful applicant will receive:
One-on-one mentorship through a series of face-face, online and email engagement (hours to be determined between mentor and mentee).
Regular feedback on the curatorial and conceptual development of the exhibition program.
Support with budgeting and procurement (purchasing) processes and project management.
Support with industry networks.
Marketing and promotional support.
Project support in the form of an exhibition budget approved and managed by the project coordinator (to be used for artist fees, public relations support, and the production of accompanying marketing material).
