Guildhouse is thrilled to announce the recipients of the 2018 LimberUP mentorships.

LimberUP is a career development mentorship program dedicated to providing South Australian creative professionals with flexible, funded opportunities to develop skills and artistic practice.

  • Artist, writer and educator Roy Ananda will help photographic visual artist Steph Fuller develop the language she uses to talk about her work and extend her practice.
  • Perth-based cultural leader Professor Ted Snell will mentor curator and arts writer Eleanor Scicchitano, helping her map out ways she can build a national practice from Adelaide.
  • Visual artist Louise Flaherty will work with mentor Laura Wills to expand her practice to engage community and develop a participatory practice.
  • Glass artist Naomi Hunter will have one-on-one sessions with third generation flame worker Peter Minson during her four week Graduate in Residence at the Canberra Glassworks to further develop her skills and methods of working with glass.
  • Under the mentorship of chief botanist Professor Michelle Waycott, artist Rebecca McEwan will engage with and observe the unique and specialised environment of the State Herbarium, developing her study of bees and pollination.

Congratulations to the FELTspace Graduate Award 2017 Recipients

In a new partnership with artist run initiative FELTspace, Guildhouse will also provide mentoring support to three emerging artists through FELT’s graduate award program for 2018:

  • Eduard Helmbold, University of South Australia
  • Kate O’Boyle, Adelaide Central School of Art
  • Danny Vines, Tafe SA (Adelaide College of the Arts)

The three FELTspace award graduates will be mentored through exhibition logistics and marketing in the lead up to their SALA exhibitions in August. They will also work one-on-one with industry leaders best suited to their individual practices.
