About Mentoring

Mentoring or creative coaching focuses on the individual or team’s specific situation and experience to enable them to learn, develop and reach their goals.

An effective mentoring session influences someone’s perception, understanding, behaviour, and progress.

Mentoring or creative coaching can be useful for periods during your artistic or professional career when you feel that you need clarity, insight into your career options or trajectory or want to pursue your dreams.

You may have a specific topic or goal you would like to work on, you may want to address a particular issue you feel you can’t solve alone. Working with a supportive mentor can help you quickly resolve challenges and implement an effective action plan.

A creative mentor and coach will work with you to establish a critical, open dialogue and get the best results that work for you.

They will work with you to assess your situation, the influences and barriers to success and enable you to communicate more effectively about your work and help identify new potential audiences and distribution platforms.

One two-hour session may well be enough to address a specific career challenge, kick-start a new body of work or you may choose to establish a monthly or quarterly session to guide you through a period of change. You determine how much support you need.

All sessions are confidential and your Artist Mentor, Ceri Hand, will be a committed, trusted critical friend.

Ceri Hand works in an honest, open and transparent way, helping you to realise your goals, play to your strengths and working with you to find the right solutions for you.



At the end of each month we host a special FREE 30 MINUTE SUBSCRIBER ONLY EVENT on Zoom, providing attendees with the opportunity to meet and ask Ceri Hand questions about careers in the visual arts.

This month’s event will take place on Friday 28 August at 6pm – 7pm
