Overview of the Cultural Mentorship Program

Since 2012, the Carmelle and Rémi Marcoux Chair in Arts Management has managed a Cultural Mentorship program with the support of the Conférence régionale des élus de Montréal. The mandate of the program is to “provide arts and cultural managers an opportunity to benefit from the transfer of experience through a mentor.”

The primary objective of the program is not a transfer of know-how, professional consultation or direct access to expertise, but the sharing of experience. It is a voluntary program for managers with at least three years’ professional experience to benefit from the knowledge that a mentor is willing to share. The mentor’s sole purpose is to help the mentee gain competence quickly with minimal risk and cost to him/herself and his/her organization.

The registration dates are May 1st, and October 1st. For more information about the program, contact André Courchesne at 514-340-6000, extension 2116, or click here (in French only).
