    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

    Mentorship pairings will be finalized by a selection committee. This committee is comprised of local professional artists and cultural workers with diverse backgrounds and experience in arts mentorship.

    The most successful mentoring partnerships are those with clear and realistic goals, strong compatibility with mentor or peer-learner, and demonstrate tangible impact on the mentee or peer-learner's practice.  Mentees should have the ability to accept constructive criticism and be receptive to thoughtful feedback. They should be open to new experiences and personal growth and show initiative and self-motivation.

    The Assessment Committee will prioritize applicants reflecting equity-seeking groups outlined in the program description.
