Session takes place in the Richmond Cultural Centre Atrium
Vancouver and New York based artist Jade Yumang leads the final session of the Artist Mentorship Program, with a focus on building a solid artist package (artist statement, proposal, and portfolio) that you can modify for funding, exhibition or residency submissions, or for entry into a university program. He will share his experiences as a working artist to lead a conversation with workshop participants on how to maintain a practice and be a part of an artistic community.
Participation is FREE, but pre-registration is required.
