The York Region Arts Council is excited to announce the call for applications for our Arts Mentorship Program (AMP). AMP is a chance to connect, learn, and grow through one-on-one mentorship with an experienced artist within their discipline. YRAC has identified a need for community building and professional development opportunities for artists in York Region. Through this program, we want to connect artists to provide a platform for learning and growth in the community. Artists seeking mentorship will be paired with a mentor who has experience in the area in which they seek mentorship.
