Guildhouse have invited myself and 9 other South Australian artists to make ourselves available as public art mentors via the Helpmann Academy mentorship program. Rather than employing the standard, and terribly boring process of applying in writing, Guildhouse has devised a kind of speed dating event whereby each of the available mentors will briefly introduce themselves to aspiring mentorees. Matches will be aligned on the evening of the event, with the potential to pursue them further at a later date. The event is scheduled for Wednesday the 29th of October.
