Mentorships

Our Arts Mentoring programs offer an opportunity to work one-on-one with an experienced mentor across fundraising, management and leadership.  

These programs are not intended as an individual professional development opportunity; rather, as a capacity-building opportunity that will provide long-term benefits for organisations as a whole.
