The mandate of the Mentorship in Motion project is to focus on the power of art to express, evaluate and heal. High school students dealing with challenges are invited to submit an application
for a collaborative art making activity. The program will connect five established local artists with five high school students living with mental health issues and/or exceptionalities in order to engage them into a collaborative two-dimensional art
The works produced during the mentorship sessions at the McMichael will be exhibited in the McMichael Community Gallery. This Project is designed to help students express, evaluate and heal themselves through a mentored relationship with local artists. In addition to this, it is part of a
broader strategy to position the McMichael as a place to foster creativity, healing and growth.
Applicants must currently be enrolled in a high school program and living with exceptionalities and/or mental health issues. Applicants will have to be able to work independently and focus for at least 30 minutes on a specific task under the guidance of an experienced artist. The gallery will not provide personal support, however participants with personal assistants will be considered.
