CSARN - Helping Canada’s Senior Artists
The Joan and Jerry Lozinski Mentorship Program

Looking for someone to guide the next step in your career?
Looking to share your gift with a colleague?

What do a world-famous flautist, a former senior director/producer at CBC, one of the founders of Toronto Dance Theatre, the writer of Degrassi High, and an acclaimed Stratford actor have in common?

They have all shared their talent and experience with younger colleagues through CSARN's Mentorship Program.

Launched in January of 2014 through the generous support of founding donor Janis Neilson, and continuing with the equally-generous support of Joan and Jerry Lozinski, the Mentorship Program gives artists of all ages an opportunity to share a one-on-one collaboration with a senior artist willing to share his or her lifetime of expertise and wisdom.

To qualify as a mentor, an artist must be at least 60 years of age with a minimum of 20 years of professional experience. Mentors are paid for their time and mentees will be covered for expenses.

There are two rounds of one-to-one mentorships each year. Application deadlines are January 1 and July 1.

We are currently piloting the program in Ontario, and getting ready to expand to other provinces. If you are an Ontario resident, and are interested in participating in this Mentorship Program, please click HERE for deadlines  and instructions.
