We are happy to announce the second round of four artists selected for our Mentor program for recent art graduates:

Eva Bakkeslett (Steigen) mentor for Hannah Mjølsnes, Ane Graff (Oslo) mentor for Thea Meinert, Åsa Sonjasdotter (Berlin), mentor for Camilla Nicolaisen and Bodil Furu (Oslo) mentor for Ananda Serné.

The Mentor program for recent art graduates will run for three years. The next application opportunity will be launched by the end of 2018. The program is open to all recent art graduates who live and work Norway.

The Mentor program for recent art graduates couples a recent art graduate with an established artist – a mentor. The mentor will work as an advisor, conversational partner, and one who shares his or her work experience. The program facilitates for the arrangement to last for the duration of a year, and allows for travels and meetings.

The jury of the Mentor program in 2018 was Helga Marie Nordby, Ruben Steinum, Karolin Tampere and Svein Ingvoll Pedersen.

The Mentor program for recent art graduates is supported by Talent Norge and Sparebank 1 Nord-Norges kulturnæringstiftelse.
