Mentoring Program

The C& Mentoring Program invites young art writers from Africa and the Global Diaspora to establish a mentor-student relationship with senior arts writers. Over the course of half a year, the mentees produce one text per month which they submit to and work through with their mentor online (via e-mail, skype or else). The idea is to support the young art critics in developing their experiences and skills. They receive a small stipend and the possibility of publishing selected texts in the online editorial sections of C& and C& AL.

The C& Mentoring Program is funded by the Ford Foundation.
