Support a Mentorship this EOFY

A mentorship at the right time in a creative career can be the catalyst for new discovery, innovation, and inspiration.

We know this because we’ve been facilitating mentorships for over 20 years, and we’ve seen firsthand the incredible impact a mentorship can have.

The Guildhouse Catapult Mentorship program is in exceptionally high demand. In 2022, thanks to our generous supporters, we’re able to fund seven career-defining mentorships at $5,000 per partnership. There are more artists that deserve this opportunity than we can afford to support – our goal is to award nine mentorships in 2022.

We need your help to help us reach our goal – we’re so close!

Any gift you make before 30 June, will directly support a South Australian artist to work with a mentor this year.

We know that you believe in the value of strengthening our creative community, and that like us, you believe in supporting artists to expand their practice and work with ambition. To continue to strive for the defining moments in a career that lead to something significant that we can all share in.

Your gift, no matter the amount, is a vital investment in the foundation of our arts sector – the artists.

Guildhouse is a not-for-profit organisation. Gifts of any amount are gratefully received, donations over $2 are tax deductible. You can donate using the online form, via direct deposit, or over the phone – please call

This mentorship has given me an understanding of a new form of art I wouldn’t have had the opportunity of knowing about beforehand. It’s been great learning more about art and culture, and the importance of both.

I have gained a greater sense of purpose and clarity in my practice, and in turn in life. I have gained more confidence in my skills and abilities. I’ve become more efficient in my making and have a much better understanding of what running a successful business from a creative practice looks like.

I have a deeper understanding of what I’m doing and why I’m doing it. This opportunity has been pivotal at this stage in my professional career.

The Catapult opportunity helped strengthen my career goals in the creative sector by exposing me to two professional established artists with the time, resources, support and financial funding needed to gain the experience that I was craving,

It exposed me to new audiences, creating dialogues and connections that I would not have otherwise been afforded. It gave me room to believe in myself, re-evaluate the intentions that I had in my practice and re-organise how to focus on one thing at a time.

As an untrained designer, I have always made do with the limited making skills I have gathered organically along the way. My mentorship with Gray has already gone a long way in filling the various gaps and shortfallings in my knowledge.

As a result I feel a lot more confident in my ability to meet the demands of my practice. Because I am at the point where I am considering a number of decisions, including outsourcing some of my production, I have found our sessions helpful in determining my future trajectory.
