The inaugural TRACE Mentorship Programme, with generous support from the Genesis Kickstart Fund, is launching a year-long no-cost mentorship programme for 24 female-identifying photographers over the age of 35. And I’m one of the 24.
Last weekend, we had our first face to face meet up in Manchester. It was while Haley Morris -Cafiero was describing the programme and what it entailed that I realised what a tremendous opportunity this is for me practice. I got goosebumps and came right smack into the present moment with the realisation and what I could do within this programme. How I could fly.
Working with the team of Haley Morris-Cafiero, Sian Bonnell, the director, Sebah Chaudhry and Polly Palmerini, the TRACE mentorship programme will provide workshops, one-to-one mentorships, peer networking, portfolio reviews and an exhibition opportunity for photographers who are selected for the programme. All delivered on line.
To be chosen as the final 24 from over 150 submissions is an honour as well as a recognition of my worth as a photographer, Creatrix. I look forward to sharing the developments of the programme as things go on.
