This small group setting mentorship led by Bramwell Enan will provide a space for participants to move their art practices forward. Selected artists will be invited to share their work and explore the work of other professional artists. The in-person meeting dates are scheduled one month apart, to allow participants time to create new work. Enan, who is deaf and has basic knowledge of ASL, will offer professional advice, facilitate critiques and provide guidance in accessing the art world.
ASL interpreter services will be available to support communication throughout the program (including the application process, all meetings and program correspondences). MAWA plans to conduct the meetings in person. MAWA will follow the Manitoba Public Health Orders for museums and galleries in effect at the time of the meeting dates. If needed, one clear window face mask will be provided for the mentor and the program participants.
Members of the d/Deaf and hard-of-hearing community as well as hearing artists, of any gender, working in any visual arts media are welcome to apply. Send three images of your work and a paragraph or video submission (3 minutes maximum) explaining your interest in this Focussed Mentorship to Yvette at [email protected]. There is no fee to apply and a free one-year MAWA membership will be given to every applicant. Successful applicants will be charged $75 for the program. If finances are a barrier, please contact MAWA staff.
Bramwell Enan is a visual artist exploring intersections between painting, sculpture and craft practices. Delighting in texture and form, Enan’s work is grounded in experimentation and curiosity that fosters jubilant disorientation. Weaving together geography, pattern and narrative, Enan creates space for collapsing impressions, and porous and shifting boundaries. Enan lives and works in Treaty 1 territory in Winnipeg and holds a BFA (Honours) from the University of Manitoba. Their work has been exhibited in Canada and the United States and is held in private collections internationally.
