Artsplan Training: Mentoring, the next creative generation - Southampton

Thursday 27th March 2014

10am - 4.15pm

Artsowrk, Southampton

Part of Artswork's Artsplan Professional Development Programme.

Special Rate Fee: £75 per person, per course

This course is suitable for artists, arts professionals and arts organisations wishing to develop the skills, talents and experience of emerging and early career stage artists and arts managers. In the challenging climate faced by arts organisations, investing in mentoring support for young artists can bring long lasting benefits to individuals, to mentors and to arts organisations. Mentoring not only delivers enhanced skills through supportive relationships but also encourages self-directed learning and models behaviours that encourage growth in others.

Following our own successful three year programme running the Stepping Up Young Leaders Training programme OYAP has found mentoring a valuable and cost effective way to help young people in the arts. In order to help other organisations learn from our experiences, we have developed a training course in association with Oxford Brookes University. This course will introduce you to the principles and skills of mentoring, to prepare you to support the next generation of practitioners.
