CCA Derry~Londonderry is pleased to announce the second cohort of the CCA x Jerwood = Supports Mentoring programme. The second cohort are:

Amira McDonagh, Clinton Kirkpatrick, Ellen Blair, Esther O’Kelly, Lucy Mulholland, Rachael Melvin, Rebecca Strain, Seanna O’Boyle-Irvine

Ellen Mara De Wachter, Edy Fung, Joy Gerrard, Alison Pascoe, Laura O’Connor, Sinéad O'Neill-Nicholl, Moran Been-noon

The Mentoring scheme offers support and assistance to emerging artists in our region who are navigating the challenges of a career in the arts. Mentees will benefit from insight and knowledge shared by their mentors, who will - through these supportive and constructive sessions - bring their experience, perspectives and prompts to mentees’ practices.

The CCA x Jerwood = Supports Short Mentoring Scheme is a paid programme for both Mentors and Mentees and the call for the next round will take place later this year. If you are interested in becoming a mentor or a mentee in future schemes, please sign up to the CCA mailing list at the bottom of the page. We will post details on the Supports page here and on social media.

Mentees and Mentors of the first cohort are:

Husk Bennett, Catherine Scott, Kelly Ewing, Grainne McMenamin, Mairead McCormack, Niall McLaughlin, Niamh Seana Meehan, and Hannah Smith

Mark Devereaux, Laura O'Connor, Edy Fung, Sinead O'Neill-Nicholl, Alison Pascoe, Moran Been-noon and Ellen Mara De Wachter

The CCA x Jerwood = Supports programme will take place throughout 2023 and 2024 and has been made possible through funding from Jerwood Developing Artists Fund.
