Open call mentorship 2020

Every year AFIELD launches an open call for its mentorship program to support 3 emerging artists and cultural practitioners engaged in a long-term social endeavor that benefits a community.

Each candidate will be required to submit an application online, through which they will be able to present their personal vision and motivation as well as the social impact of their initiative.

The three selected applicants will be granted $1500 of seed funding to develop their initiatives and will receive advice from a mentor, chosen with them within the AFIELD network composed of past fellows and advisors. Based on a participatory grant making model, applications will be evaluated by the same AFIELD network.

The mentorship is a 18 months peer-to-peer learning programme that is tailored to each individual and project. It is meant to encourage and support young initiatives in their initial development. Each mentee will be accompanied by a mentor from the AFIELD network who, through regular conversations, will provide advice and feedback.
This could concern the mission, the impact, and the strategic development of the project within its specific community.

To find out about projects selected last year you can look at the 2019 edition of the mentorship open call.
