Recap: Virtual Speed Mentoring session during Contemporary Art Conservation Revisited

Posted on Tue, 07/05/2022 - 15:35

On 28th January of 2022, a second virtual INCCA Speed Mentoring session was carried out during the Contemporary Art Conservation Revisited: 20 Years Later, organised in collaboration with the Bern Academy of the Arts (HKB).

There was a nice mix of mentors with affiliation to the Bern training programme, including time-based media arts, emerging professionals and (PhD) training programmes in general. It was a fun meeting, in which each of the eight mentors spoke with 4 mentees on Zoom in individual break-out rooms, allowing for uninterrupted time together.

Many thanks Martina Haidvogel and Marina Pfenninger-Lepage from HBK for making this session possible as part of their symposium Contemporary Art Conservation Revisited: 20 Years Later, and to Paula Chang who took care of all the assignments to break-out rooms. And to all our volunteer mentors and mentees for signing up and making the event a lively and fun experience for every participant.
