CATAPULT and CATAPULT + TARNANTHI provides creative professionals with essential funding and support to further develop their artistic practice through a meaningful mentorship.

The projects of Catapult recipients show ambition, drive and dedication. Mentees engage with mentors from around the country to develop skills, realise projects and allow time to learn more about their practice.  

With the generous support of the Ian Potter Foundation Guildhouse has provided 9 mentorships to Guildhouse members and in partnership with AGSA awarded 2 First Nations artists mentorships through Catapult + TARNANTHI.

Catapult and Catapult + TARNANTHI are opportuitues open to South Australian Guildhouse members.

 

At this stage I have already acquired a great deal of skills and knowledge in mould making enriching my practice. The opportunity to work alongside such a generous mentor with such a high level of skill and expertise for her craft has been incredibly valuable. Without this opportunity to work with Irianna in her studio I would not have had access to such valued information.

The opportunity to reflect on how I have gotten to where I am has given me a clearer vision for where I might like to see my career in five to ten years time, and more importantly, how I might get there.
