Me and my mentor: Britt Salt and Hannah Gartside

Visual artists Britt Salt and Hannah Gartside are both interested in real bodies moving through their installations. They were paired as part of the VCA Masters Mentoring program.

Each year, up to five esteemed VCA alumni artists are paired with high-performing final year Masters of Fine Art students to mentor them and provide connections with galleries.

The awarded students are able to build relationships, experience hands-on industry exposure and nurture more sustainable career pathways beyond formal education. In return, the mentors receive a small stipend, and the chance to interrogate their own practice and renew their relationships with the VCA community.
