Members, we value contributions at all levels of careers, and will work to pair you with appropriate mentees: apply to be a Mentor today! Mentoring will happen on Friday and Saturday during Puertográfico.
Becoming a mentor is an outstanding way to serve our membership and foster a new generation of print artists and enthusiasts. Mentors are SGCI members who are experienced professionals, and want to serve our membership and foster interest in our field. This is a volunteer service that they provide.
Mentoring Sessions are one-on-one, and are available for individuals at all stages of their careers – whether you are an undergraduate student thinking about an MFA, a graduate student seeking career advice, an independent artist looking to start a press, or someone in a tenure-track position looking for advice about navigating academia.
Mentoring topics include (but are not limited to): • Artist Portfolio Reviews • Career Advice for Emerging and Mid-Career Artists • Tenure and Academic Advancement • Independent Presses, Non-Profits, and Community-Based Art
Session times: Mentor sessions are 20 minutes in duration.
Timeline: Mentors will be notified of acceptance within 4-6 weeks. Accepted mentors will receive their schedule and information about their mentees shortly before the conference.
