After much deliberation, MENTORAPDG has offered places to fourteen emerging practitioners to be mentored in 2020/21.
We received applications from a pool of emerging practitioners who demonstrated excellence in their work, and commitment to developing their skills, networks and professionalism. The selection is based on the mentee’s level of experience in the industry (with a requirement of 2 years minimum), the calibre and potential of their work and whether a suitable mentor was available.
There are five Live Performance and nine Screen participants in disciplines; Art Direction, Set Decoration, Hair and Make-up Design, Lighting Design, Costume Design and Production Design.
Congratulations to the 2020 Mentees: Aislinn Naughton, Celeste Veldze, Anthea Hodge, Brianna Patrice Russell, Chantal Marks, Dominic Kuneman, Gabrielle Rowe, Hayley Atherton, Madeleine Barlow, Rose Montgomery, Samantha Dabrowski, Siobhan Jett O’Hanlon, Veronique Benett and Yvette Turnbull.
Thank you to the remarkable APDG members who have come on board to mentor: Sophie Nash, Deb Riley, Michael Scott Mitchell, Karen Murphy, Fiona Donovan, Nikki Gooley, Tim Chappel, Anna Cordingley, Damien Drew, Wendy Cork, Paul Jackson, Stephen Jones Evans and Lisa Thompson.
