with Shawna Dempsey and Adriana Alarcón

This participatory workshop will explore the dynamic of the mentor/mentee relationship. Topics will include defining structure, boundaries and expectations and negotiating conflict. The workshop will also explore learning models and will offer a variety of approaches and practical advice. It is an informative how-to for anyone considering setting up a mentorship program, anyone who will be mentoring, or anyone who works in peer-based arts education. It is based on MAWA’s 38-year experience as a pioneer in the field of arts mentorship.

MAWA Co-ED Shawna Dempsey has mentored for MAWA, Video Pool and Crossing Communities. She has also taught mentoring workshops for Visual Arts Ontario, Visual Arts Nova Scotia and CARFAC Saskatchewan, among others. MAWA Program and Outreach Coordinator Adriana Alarcón has led MAWA’s Foundation Mentorship Program for 5 years and has lectured about mentorship nationally.
