Connect the Dots invites collaborative-minded, experienced and creative artists to apply to work on our Make Moments Mentoring Project.
Your role is to share your skills, knowledge and passion for your particular art form with two older people who have participated in the Make Moments workshops in Auckland. You will be offered training, and will develop workshops to suit the interests and ideas of the people you will be partnered with to mentor. Over the course of ten workshops you will be respond to the needs and interests of your mentees and develop appropriate and engaging opportunities to explore their creativity. At the end of the project you will work with your partners to select work to be exhibited in Auckland in early 2020.
You will be proficient in your art form, with experience of teaching or mentoring, and committed to the rights of older people to access quality and meaningful art experiences.
Mentors will be paid $2500 over the course of project from July 2019 – February 2020 with an expectation that each Mentor will work for 65-75 hours for CTD, including paid preparation time and on-going training. CTD covers the cost of art supplies.
For further information and to apply, Artists are asked to send a
CV and Cover Letter to CTD Director Andrea Gaskin at: email@example.com
All applications must be in by 5 April 2019.
Interviews will take place in late April.
CTD is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and strives to build a staff and board that reflect the cultural diversity of Auckland. We will be looking for a broad range of visual artists, and particularly artists with experience in toi Maori and Pasefika art practices to support the kuia and kaumatua that we have invited to be a part of this project.
Make Moments Artist Mentoring Project 2019-2020 is funded through the JetStar Flying Start Programme
Connect the Dots delivers regular Professional Development workshops. We recognise that many wonderful people are not able to attend our Make Moments programmes in gallery spaces, so it is our intention to provide support to Health Professionals to provide programmes within their facilities.
The objective of these one-day workshops is to introduce participants to a range of skills and techniques to enable meaningful conversations around an art work or object. We cover a range of processes, including visual analysis and a facilitation sequence, as well as an exploration and practice of different types of questions.
The objective of these one-day workshops is to introduce participants to a range of skills and techniques to enable meaningful conversations around an art work or object, and to connect the themes and ideas to an art making workshop. We cover a range of processes, including visual analysis and a facilitation sequence, as well as an exploration and practice of different types of questions, and the fundamentals when developing an art making workshop programme that is both interesting, challenging and age-appropriate.
