Mentoring and Creative Coaching
Artist Mentor provides mentoring, coaching, career advice and training to contemporary artists and creative professionals, in one-to-one and group sessions.
We have a network of Associate Mentors, enabling us to respond to a growing range of client and sector needs.
If you are a committed artist, creative or creative professional interested in receiving mentoring or coaching support, please do register first, so we can identify the nature and level of support required, and which Mentor is best suited to you and your work.
We get the best results from working together over a period of time. This means we get to know you, your work, the contexts and nuances of your achievements and challenges to date and the scope for potential development.
The period of time you commit to can range from a period of weeks to years, depending on your requirements and budget.
In the first hourly session we conduct a review of your work and creative journey to date, and establish the agreed areas for development. We will design a bespoke mentoring or coaching plan with targets, actions and tools tailored to your needs and ambitions.
Sessions could include, for example:
✓ Critical feedback on your work
✓ Overcoming creative blocks or personnel challenges
✓ Turbo-charging your Artist Statement or CV
✓ Application feedback
✓ Interview practice
✓ Project and budget management
✓ Establishing and managing teams
✓ Marketing and networking
