29 April 2021

Deadline: May 25, 2021

A Centenary Cultural Mentor Programme

A mentor programme designed for 21 outstanding young artists (ie 18-21yrs old at any point in 2021) across the full creative spectrum (includes sculpture, so we assume makers) to develop their artistic skills and creative expertise.

A host of Northern Ireland’s most talented creatives will nurture and guide young participants, providing crucial career and business guidance to set them on their way to a successful career.

Each of the 21 successful artists will receive:
– A bursary of £350 a week for the duration of their agreed project
– The support of a designated mentor
– Residential or travel costs and other resources as appropriate for their project
– Access to seminars on career development
– The opportunity to have their work showcased in a high profile cultural event
