From 2018–21 we worked with a small cohort of five artists from across the North to deliver a mentoring programme. The Greening Arts Practice Mentoring Programme combined a range of in-house support from Chrysalis with financial support for external mentoring and other relevant professional development opportunities. The artists supported via the programme were: Sam Pickett, Jeni McConnell, Jessica Elleray, Anna Whitehouse and Jacqui Symons.
‘I’m amazed at how much my thinking has shifted over the time since we started this process and what I have achieved.’
Mentee, Jeni McConnell
‘I really appreciate the support and insights Chrysalis have offered me during the mentoring process and I believe I have genuinely come a long way since the programme began.’
Mentee, Sam Pickett
‘I have learnt so much about writing funding applications by doing a few this year with your guidance, so thank you, it all counts towards my development!’
