THE MENTOR PROGRAM
- edition SAGA
with Elisabeth N. Aanes
19 Nov. 2020 - 9 June 2021
SAGA - Inderøy - Norway
NORDphotography invites you to join our Mentor Program starting November 14TH at our creative center SAGA in Inderøy.
This is a program that extends over 8 months and culminates with a group exhibit at SAGA which will be part of our summer exhibit program 2021.
This is an mentorship program for photographers and photo-entusiast looking to work on long term project, with the goal of finishing a body of work within the length of the program. The topic and the extent of your project is up to you. Lectures, discussions and critique of student work will be the structure of the program. For our creative assignments we will find inspiration in The Photographers Playbook and Julia Cameron’s beloved book The Artist Way.
We will have 8 group meetings from November 2020 to June 2021. Each lecture will be tailored to each participant’s project, to give inspiration and guidance for further development.
You should come to our Mentor Program with an idea of a project. It can be an old project you want to finish, or a new project you want to create. You might change your ideas during the programs course, but it is always good to have a couple of ideas from the start. Each participant are asked to bring a minimum of 10 new images from their ongoing project to each group meetings for feedback and critic.
During this mentorprogram you will learn to develop a cohesive body of work, present work in a professional matter, critique other photographers work, respond to critique of your own work, and the process of planning and hanging an exhibit. NORDphotography's Mentor Program will help discover, develop or fine-tune each photographer’s creative voice.
The mentor program wraps with a group exhibition at SAGA where each participant displays a selection of images from their project. The exhibit, which is part of SAGA's Summer Exhibit will open in June 2021, and hang until mid August.
