A new mentorship program is aiming to give Brampton newcomers with an artistic streak a chance to build their entrepreneurial skills and plan for success.

Through its Mentor in Residence Program, the city is looking to assist artists working in all disciplines with mentorship support, career planning and project development through virtual consultation sessions with industry professionals.

The program is a partnership between Brampton’s Arts, Culture and Creative Industry Development Agency (ACCIDA) and the Neighbourhood Arts Network, and aims to support newcomer artists in Brampton.

Mayor Patrick Brown said the partnership program will help Brampton’s emerging local artists and “develop our city into an arts and culture hub.”

Neighbourhood Arts Network is a strategic initiative of the Toronto Arts Foundation, and offers accessible arts programming, awards, and exciting partnership opportunities to artists, arts educators and arts organizations across the GTA.

ACCIDA is focused on growing, celebrating, advocating for the city’s art sector through programs, services and resources.
