This three-hour workshop will explore the dynamic of the mentor/mentee relationship. The afternoon will be active and fun, as attendees participate in a variety of activities designed to highlight their own experiences, strengths, skills and gifts, as well as some of the challenges in establishing a mutual mentorship vision. Topics discussed will include defining structure, boundaries and expectations, avoiding pitfalls and negotiating conflict. The workshop will also explore learning models and will offer a variety of approaches and practical advice. It is an excellent 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 experience as a pioneer in the field of arts mentorship for the past 40 years.
