The Catapult mentorship program provides creative professionals with essential funding and support to develop their artistic practice through a meaningful mentorship.
The projects of Catapult recipients show ambition, drive and dedication. Mentees engage with mentors from around the country to develop skills, realise projects and allow time to learn more about their practice.
We are thrilled to continue to offer the Catapult mentorship program, with multiple mentorships available at $5,000 for South Australian artists, craftspeople and designers.
Thanks to our partnership with Country Arts SA, two of these mentorships have been earmarked to support regional artists.
Building on from many years of successful mentorship programs, this current round of Catapult continues a focus on applications that will provide a long lasting impact on the career of the recipient. Our mentorships have supported a diverse mix of artists and learning outcomes, each with an ambitious drive to build on existing skills and extend the development and professionalism of practice. Robust connections between the mentee and mentor and thorough, achievable action plans have proven to be the successful recipe for meaningful mentorships, and we look forward to facilitating more transformational experiences in 2022.
Catapult is generously funded through the Guildhouse Creative Champions donor program, the Ian Potter Foundation and Country Arts SA.
We strongly encourage regional artists to apply.
