Coaching/Mentoring Opportunity 2021

Coaching & Mentoring

Please note, the closing date for applications to our Coaching/Mentoring Opportunity has now passed and we are unable to accept any further applications.


As part of its suite of clinics and development opportunities in 2021, the Arts Office is offering coaching/mentoring sessions with experienced coaches and expert consultants from the arts sector. We hope that this opportunity will support people's resilience and planning in 2021. The objective of this initiative is to build the confidence and capacity of artists and arts professionals to be at their best in 2021.

Who is it for?

Professional artists and arts workers.

Who is delivering it?

SUSAN COUGHLAN. Susan is an experienced facilitator, coach and organisation development consultant in the arts and cultural sector.
PAUL JOHNSON. Paul is an arts consultant and facilitator, who specialises in governance and strategic development.

How does it work?

If you are an individual artist or arts leader you can express your interest here by using the online process.  Once the deadline passes, we will assign a coach or mentor to applicants.  We may have to shortlist if there are more applications than we can facilitate.


Twenty artists will receive two one-hour, one-to-one sessions.  If you receive a place, we will confirm the coach/mentor and arrange for them to contact you to set up the sessions.
