Discover new ways for your further professional development!
IUGTE Mentorship Program is designed for creative and enthusiastic individuals who are curious and passionate about performing arts, motivated to learn and ambitious to develop their career at international level.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
The program is open to arts administrators, theatre directors and stage managers, interested to participate in a practical training experience with the professional guidance and support of IUGTE mentors.
IUGTE Mentorship Program offers everyone the opportunity to grow professionally and personally without regard to gender or race and is open to candidates from different countries and diverse performing arts backgrounds.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK
IUGTE Mentorship Program offers structured support for professional development. Usually the practical programme lasts from a minimum of one to three months and a maximum of twelve months.
The programme focus, timeframe and conditions are designed individually for each candidate mentoree.
The peers help each other to learn and to develop the necessary skills and knowledge.
Many mentorees standing at the crossroads of their professional life often have a great energy but only a general idea of what exactly they are looking for.
They see themselves confronted with many difficult questions, for example: Am I really doing everything I can with my talent? Is my career in performing arts really what I want it to be right now? IUGTE experts generously share their time, wisdom and guidance down the paths that they themselves have walked. An individual can arrange a structured relationship with a qualified IUGTE professional who will provide specific mentorship.
Participants of IUGTE Mentorship Program coordinate and manage the major events of IUGTE. Mentorees and mentors work together to prepare and realize various and often complex international events - from training events and conferences to productions and collaboration projects.
