Mentorship Opportunities Available
As a new feature of the program in 2019, Mastering the Hustle will now offer mentorship sessions on the day of each workshop to provide emerging artists - especially youth artists - with the opportunity to connect with an industry expert for more one-on-one conversations and support, based on the content of the Mastering the Hustle workshops. Mentors are all affiliated with the partner organizations, receive training on how to be a good mentor, and are bound by values of artistic integrity, creative freedom, and personal responsibility.
Mentor meetings will occur at MoPOP on the morning of the workshops and are free. Each mentee (individual or band) will be paired with an industry professional and have a 30-minute session with them, followed by opportunities to connect after the workshop.
Applications are now closed for this mentor meeting.
