Leitrim Arts Office launch new mentoring programme

Mentoring Workshop

Have you ever thought about sharing your skills as a mentor, or do you think you would benefit from having a mentor?


A mentor can help you to develop your artistic practice, provide an objective critique and feedback on your work, or help you to work through a specific idea, no matter what stage of your career you may be at.
Mentoring can be very broad, relating to your long-term goals or very specific, relating directly to special projects, growing your professional network, working internationally or expanding your business or marketing skills.


To introduce Creative Frame members to the practicalities of mentoring we will host a Mentoring Induction Workshop on Tuesday, June 5 from 1.30 – 5.15pm at the Council Chambers in Carrick-on-Shannon.
The workshop will be facilitated by Monika Sapielak from the Centre for Creative Practices who ran a similar workshop last year which was very successful and noted by attendees as being particularly beneficial.


The workshop, for both mentors and mentees, offers an introduction to the mentoring mindset and develops the skills and approaches needed for mentoring to be successful for both parties.
To ensure that you can get the most out of any future mentoring relationship the workshop will explore themes like fundamental mentoring principles, different models of mentoring, and how to define and achieve your mentoring goals.


Taking part in this induction workshop will be valuable for anyone interested in mentoring but it is particularly recommended for any member intending to apply for Leitrim County Council Arts Office’s 2018 Mentoring Programme and we strongly urge any member who may have an interest in sharing their skills as a mentor, or in being a mentee, or both, either now or at any time in the future to attend this workshop.


The workshop is free and open only to members of creative frame.
