2011 Mentorship Program details are here!

We’re back for another amazing year!


“All in all, IGNITE! has been one of the best experiences of my life.”
-Jennifer Bednard, 2010 Playwriting Mentorship Participant

The Cultch’s Youth Program is proud to present the fourth season of our IGNITE! Mentorship Program. IGNITE! is designed to offer youth in Vancouver unprecedented access to professional artists and to demystify what it takes to build a career in the arts.

In 2011 we will be offering mentorship programs in Songwriting, Spoken Word, Dance, Directing, and Playwriting.

The program is free for young artists between the ages of 13-24 who want to pursue a career in the arts. Each participant is paired with a professional for a series of participant-driven one-on-one workshops. In addition, the youth receive skill building workshops with industry professionals in areas such as grant writing and media relations, an opportunity to document their work in a professional studio environment, and a showcase performance on the Cultch’s stage.

The Cultch has recruited an amazing roster of mentors for the 2010/2011 season. They are:

Noam Gagnon (Holy Body Tattoo)
Susan Elliott (Anatomica)
Josh Martin (605 Collective)
