Wingspace Mentorship Program
Wingspace Theatrical Design
Brooklyn, NY 11215
The Wingspace Mentorship Program is a free, one-year program designed to broaden access and disrupt barriers early-career designers encounter while trying to advance their careers in the performing arts. We seek to create a learner-centered community that empowers curious and passionate mentees to connect to career opportunities, build connections in the design community, and hone their skills. Mentorships are offered in direction, scenic design, costume design, lighting design, sound design, and projection design.
MENTEES WILL RECEIVE:
- Two dedicated mentors in your field will meet with you monthly to provide ongoing individualized guidance to support your goals. The mentors are working designers who are eager to share their experiences, offer feedback, make introductions, and be a sounding board for your questions about your artistic practice.
- The full community of mentors and mentees across all disciplines gather once per month for round-table discussions, to pool our knowledge and demystify a wide range of topics selected collaboratively by the mentors and the mentees. Past topics have included: taxes and financial planning, work/life balance, accessibility in the theater, artistic collaboration, unions and agents.
- Feedback on portfolios, websites, and resumes
- As COVID safety protocol evolves and allows, there will be opportunities (such as mixers, and tickets to shows) for the full community of mentors and mentees to hang out!
