CSMN Ontario 2024-25 Applications Now Open

We are excited to announce our ninth year of ABO’s Creative Space Mentoring Network (CSMN)!

This program is provided to leaders in Ontario’s arts and cultural sectors who are responsible for some or all aspects of their creative spaces. If you are an arts professional and plan on acquiring creative space, and/or manage capital-related issues you are encouraged to apply.

Through CSMN, ArtsBuild Ontario (ABO) matches cultural leaders with experienced Mentors from the arts, heritage, or other relevant sectors.  Once mentoring teams are confirmed, they will meet at the Kick-Off Webinar and afterwards begin meeting for up to three hours monthly over 12 months. Over the next year of the program Mentor/Mentee pairs will focus on developing skills and knowledge related to the Mentee’s priority areas.

ABO will train and support the mentoring teams so that they get the most out of the program by developing and providing:

  • A Kick-Off Webinar, Mid-Point Webinar, and a Wrap-Up Webinar
  • Resources & learning opportunities
  • Program support

If you are looking for a one-to-one learning opportunity with an experienced mentor providing knowledge and expertise in the scope of your project, apply to be a Mentee today!

The deadline to apply is Friday, December 15th, 2023 at 11:59 pm EST.
