19-29 year-old Individual Mentorship *NEW age for 2017-18

2017-18 applications now being accepted.
Will be assessed in order of submission.

Final date to apply is June 26.

Creative Manitoba's Careers in the Arts mentorship program is in its 11th season. Youth aged 19-29 can be mentored in any artistic discipline–creative, administrative, or technical. Within the chosen artistic area, the program’s aim is to offer:

  • Structured one-on-one tutelage from a recognized mentor
  • Networking opportunities within the industry
  • Volunteer work experience
  • Development of essential skills and knowledge of the arts and cultural sector

The program runs from September to May each year with applications accepted in June.

Application Process

There are three ways to apply for this program:

  1. Mentor and Youth may apply as a team, with the mentor acting as the youth’s nominator. For the year of the proposed pairing, the youth cannot be a registered student or an employee of the mentor.
  2. A youth may apply without a specific mentor in mind, and if selected, Creative Manitoba will make their best effort to find an appropriate mentor.
  3. A mentor may apply individually, indicating their interest and availability, and will be kept on file for a potential match up.
