Mentorship for Socially-Engaged Arts + Culture Projects

We accompany you throughout the lifecycle of a creative project to set it up for success, whatever that means to you

We’ll accompany you through your project’s key steps and milestones, from concept development to evaluation and impact. 

This offering comprises four robust phases that blend coaching, workshops, and practicum. The idea is to give you tools, actionable insights, and resources to work on specific challenges and gain confidence as your project evolves.

You can expect to…

  • Gain clarity on your project’s concept, values, and strategy
  • Build your value proposition and theory of change
  • Define what success means to you and the communities and audiences you serve
  • Clarify communications strategies and business plan
  • Get a set of tools, supporting materials, and resources to support you on your journey
