JUMP information sessions 30th August

Applications for the JUMP National Mentoring Program for Young and Emerging Artists open soon, and as JUMP’s ACT delivery partner, CCAS are hosting an info session on Tuesday 30 August - further information below and attached.

We’d appreciate you helping us spread the word about JUMP and the info session to anyone you think may be interested.

JUMP is the Australia Council's national mentoring program for young and emerging artists (18-30yrs) that identifies and promotes excellence in artistic practice. Supported artforms include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts, Community Arts, Dance, Interdisciplinary Arts, Literature, Music, Theater, or Visual Arts. Already the largest artist mentoring program nationally, the 2012 program features the highest number of mentorship places on offer yet in the program. Through the JUMP program artists can further their careers through a ten month one on one relationship with a leading arts professional of their choice, and join a diverse national network of around 150 program participants and alumni making their mark on the industry.

Applications for the 2012 JUMP program open 22 August and close 28 October 2011.
