Workshop description:

In this workshop, we will use our time together to unpack some of the non-monetary exchanges, trades, barters, and swaps between mentee and mentor. I will briefly share some of my thinking about economics, relationships and art in reference to my work, and facilitate an opportunity for participants to do the same. Then, drawing from, and looking at our past and present experiences with mentorship, we will learn some things from each other that will allow us to better sheppard good, successful, equitable mentorships for our personal and collective benefit. Our brainstorming and discussion will serve as the research for the group show exhibition that we will create by the time the workshop is over.
