Over the Fence - Youth Mentorship Program
We're inviting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from young people who live in the local Parramatta and Cumberland areas to join our creative arts workshop intensives from April – August 2022.
Cumberland’s Granville Centre Art Gallery is collaborating with Parramatta Artists’ Studios and opnsrc.co to deliver a creative youth mentorship program to support creative development of local young artists.
The mentorship program will facilitate five workshop intensives led by Over the Fence artist mentors, who will facilitate a range of diverse creative activities to enhance the artistic expression and development of young participating artists aged 16 to 24 years.
