The Mondriaan Fund offers a Master-Apprentice Scheme, to meet the increasing demand from emerging artists for guidance by an experienced colleague and also to encourage the exchange of knowledge and experience. Emerging artists are allied with established colleagues for consultation on their artistic and commercial practice, within the context of the various Mondriaan Fund grant programs and other activities. See below for more information.
In collaboration with Cultuur+Ondernemen the Mondriaan Fund offers the possibility of mentoring; a custom-made-program for artists granted a Artist Start/ Stipendium for Emerging Artists. The programme is based on a series of meetings to discuss the development and progress of the work, while exchanging of ideas, inspiration and experience. Please scroll down for an overview of mentors (in Dutch).
For time-bound projects with or without concrete results, for example a national or international internship with an artist or a cultural institution; or an working collaboration between a mid-career artist and an emerging artist. This form of collaboration boosts the art practice of the more experienced artist because a significant project is undertaken, while the emerging artist gains valuable experience.
Lastly, the Mondriaan Fund can support pilot collaboration projects.
