WebinArt looking for participants and mentors

13 February 2020

WebinArt is Creative Leicestershire’s flagship one-year Professional Development Programme for early-career creatives and artists in Leicestershire. They collaborate with experienced professionals online and in-person to help creative start-ups navigate their way to confidence and success.

As the current WebinArt programme draws to a close, the team is busy securing funding to run the next phase which we hope will begin in April 2020. They are planning a few changes which will mean providing support for mid-career creative enterprises as well as those who are just starting out. The two programmes will run side by side and will include mentoring, 12 monthly webinars, 6 live interviews, and 6 networking events in Leicestershire, Rutland and Derbyshire.

The cost for each participant will be £100 over the 12 months, which works out at just under £8.50 a month. There will be 6 free places available to those on low incomes or receiving benefits in the following areas: Blaby, NW Leicestershire, Hinckley & Bosworth and Rutland.

When registering your interest please state whether you are interested in applying for one of these places, you will then be asked to provide evidence on application.

If you are interested in being a mentor Creative Leicestershire will be looking to contract 6 mentors from the following areas in Leicestershire over the 12-month programme: Blaby, NW Leicestershire, Hinckley & Bosworth and Rutland. Complimentary mentoring will also be provided by our partner arts organisations in Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Rutland.
