It is particularly for people who identify as non-binary or transgender.

The program is free and gives mentees FREE 6-months of mentorship and includes:

  • 10 free hours of studio time (to rehearse performances) – valued at $450
  • 10 free class credits to attend professional development classes/workshops at Flazéda – valued at $250
  • 3 hours of one-on-one mentorship (with choice of mentors) – valued at $450
  • 2 opportunities for performance (inclusion in show line ups with feedback provided from mentor)

All successful applicants will also be given access to a collection of digital resources provided by the mentors to support artist professional growth and will also have access to a Social Media for Artists training workshop.

Participating artists will work on their own timeline/s and have the flexibility to design their opportunity around mentor and  studio availability and other commitments.
