MAWA: Call for Submissions

Year-long Mentorship Program, Sept. 2011 - Sept. 2012
Deadline: Friday, April 29, 2011, 4:00 pm
Successful applicants will be charged a $300 fee for the program.

There is no fee to apply, although you must be a MAWA member. 
Students are not eligible.

MAWA's Foundation Mentorship Program is a year-long program in which senior women artists share their experience with developing women artists. It is designed to help women in the visual arts develop skills and define their decision-making philosophies, and to provide access to the information, resources and support they need to realize their goals. 

In addition to a one-on-one relationship with a mentor, the program provides a peer group for the mentees through group meetings.

Mentors meet with their mentees individually for 5 hours per month, and the entire group meets for 3 hours monthly.

Applicants are selected based on:
- the quality and potential of the work submitted
- the emerging artist’s willingness to dedicate time to the program 
- the mentor’s ability to work with the emerging artist

or contact Lisa Wood, Program and Administrative Coordinator

The Mentors:
Amber-Dawn Bear Robe
Mélanie Rocan
