DESCRIPTION

EMERGING ARTS LEADERS/LOS ANGELES SEEKS APPLICATIONS FOR PROTÉGÉ, ITS ONE-ON-ONE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles (EAL/LA) prepares, educates, and inspires the next generation of arts sector leadership. EAL/LA develops free or low-cost programs, workshops, and networking opportunities for arts leaders across Los Angeles. We believe that these investments in the creative sector enrich and sustain the cultural ecology of Los Angeles.

The Protégé mentorship program offers community members a personalized professional development opportunity by pairing emerging leaders with seasoned professionals and offering guidance through a series of meetings that enriches the careers of both participants

The 2018 Protégé program will begin in late March, concluding in mid-December. Throughout the program, pairs will meet to discuss their careers, goals, or may work on a project together. Pairs arrange their own sessions; a mixture of in-person, phone, video conference or other meeting methods are encouraged for the convenience of both participants. Monthly meetings/check-ins are recommended.
