Peer to Peer Mentoring

 

Have you ever thought about sharing your skills as a mentor, or do you think you would benefit from having a mentor?

In 2019, CFCP will be running a Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Pilot Project for 5 migrant/culturally diverse artists and 5 local Irish artists. The geographical focus is the South-East of Ireland, encompassing counties Wicklow, Carlow, Wexford, Waterford, Tipperary and Kilkenny.

A mentor is someone who can help to develop artistic practice, provide objective feedback on an artist’s work, or help to work through a specific idea, no matter what stage of their career the artist may be at. Mentoring can be very broad, relating to both short and long-term goals, growing a professional network, working internationally or expanding business and marketing skills.

Supported by the Arts Council, mentors accepted onto the CFCP’s Intercultural Mentoring Programme will be rewarded with €100 per session with a mentee, (2 hours on average). Both the mentor and mentee will be obliged to complete a Mentorship Meeting Report when the programme is completed.
