Are you an artist with experience or interest in working with young people? Are you looking for ways to connect with like-minded artists in your community? Ever wonder if mentorship might help you advance your career? We want to hear from you!

Join us for an afternoon of connection and dialogue with a diverse group of like-minded artists working in a variety of disciplines. Through a series of energetic and thought-provoking activities, we will share experiences, reframe traditional models and ideate possibilities for building a local community of mentorship for artists in the classroom. This event is one of five salons being held across the province that is contributing to ArtStarts’ development of a new project to support artists in the classroom.
