Speed Mentoring Session

Posted on Tue, 04/19/2022 - 11:11


Los Angeles

Date and time

INCCA (International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art) together with CAN! (Contemporary Art Network) cordially invite you for the Speed Mentoring session on 16th May, as part of the conference 2022 AIC Annual Meeting.
Inspired by and modelled after speed-dating, this session creates the chance to have short (10 mins) sessions of one-on-one time with recognized professionals in the field, without all the normal distractions associated with conferences.
Your session is an opportunity to ask your mentor anything you want! You can talk about them, about you, about the field in general, or about anything else. You will have a one-on-one conversation, so nobody will interrupt you, and our impressive group of mentors are eager to listen, discuss and advise. At the end of your session, you will leave the mentor and have an opportunity to meet the other mentees, or ask questions to the organizers from CAN! and INCCA.
If you are interested in reserving your time with any of the following mentors, please send an email to Jen Munch – can.ecpn.liaison@gmail.com. You may give a first and a second preference in case your first choice is already booked. Requests will be dealt with on a first-come first-served basis.
