MENTORSHIP

The mentorship programme is open to artists, creative practitioners, curators, cultural producers, and individuals committed to exploring art as a catalyst or an entry point into their work.

Conceived to promote and create visibility to emerging and diverse practices, the mentorship is tailored to each practitioner and can be delivered independently or integrated into a studio residency.

 

Who should apply?

  • Fresh graduates in the fields of the arts and humanities

  • Emerging artists, curators, writers, creative practitioners

  • Individuals interested in using art as a point of departure, or to initiate conversations in and around the arts

How is the mentorship programme delivered?
Each mentoring session is one-hour and takes place at dblspce or via an online platform (e.g. Zoom). 

We recommend a commitment of 6 to 8 sessions over a two-month period. 


The mentorship runs on a pay-as-you-wish programme or a recommended contribution of SGD50/hour (one session). There will be a rebate of 10% upon completion of 6 sessions.

What can I expect during these sessions?
Together with your identified mentor, you will:

  • Assess key goals and professional aspirations;

  • Identify areas you would like to develop, explore and work on;

  • Engage in 1-to-1 consultations of tailored exercises and activities.
