Mentors work within our program supporting artists through evaluation, coaching, collaborative learning, as well as providing deep access to a network of expertise in the Okanagan. The mentor team’s primary objective is to support the artist’s growth for greater success with their residency project.

The mentorship process will be very different for each Convergent.Studio artist depending on the artist’s needs. Mentors have a genuine interest in the arts and the outcome of each project, and will advise their artist mentee on next steps and processes which may help them achieve their goals.
