One-on-One Mentorship is a tailored, individual program intended to serve your unique needs as a visual artist by providing you with focussed attention from a mentor of your choice. They can reside anywhere, locally, nationally or internationally. You and the mentor will be responsible for setting up meeting dates and times. At the conclusion of your time together, you both will be required to provide written feedback to MAWA, so that subsequent participants can benefit from your experience.

In order to apply, you must reach out to the person you would like to work with and get a written commitment from them to meet with you for 6 hours over a period of 4 months. MAWA will pay One-on-One mentors $600.

To apply, please submit a single PDF labelled with your name that contains:

  • 5 images of your work;
  • a one-page letter introducing your proposed mentor and describing how they can help you to advance your practice;
  • your artist résumé
  • a copy of email correspondence with confirmation from the mentor.

Send the PDF in an email with “One-on-One 2023” in the subject heading to Adriana at [email protected].

There is no fee to apply, but you must be a MAWA member. Successful applicants will be charged $75. If finances are a barrier, please contact MAWA staff.

Note: Those who have been a Foundation Mentorship Program mentee in the past 3 years or who have already received a One-on-One Mentorship are ineligible.
