Industry access, project development and presentation
Mentoring is a relationship based in reciprocal exchange which supports personal, professional, career and creative development. Beyond exposure to professional-level gallery protocols and the exchange of information and skills, the most valuable attribute of CAT’s Curatorial Mentorship is the connection with peers and industry professionals and the ongoing relationships formed through the program.
The Curatorial Mentorship program has been reinvigorated to better reflect the changing aspirations and goals of early-career curators. It supports an early-career Tasmanian curator in a mentorship program that engages industry access, project development and public presentation. Collegial and flexible, each program is led initially by the curator and their artistic focus with institutional support provided through CAT, invited industry professionals and institutions. The program term is between 8 – 12 months and is offered biennially.
