Come learn about Alliance, the MAI’s unique artist-support program (previously known as the mentorship program) in the company of the program coordinator, Nayla Naoufal. This information session will cover the program’s structure, admissions criteria, key deadlines, and the various services it offers. The program is open to candidates from all artistic fields. 


Hosting 10-15 artists, collectives and companies per year, the Alliance artist support program offers participating artists with individual guidance and coordination support, in addition to providing special allocations that help remove barriers to their equal participation in the arts and cover a wide range of services related to the artists’ needs, desires and experiences in terms of learning and creation. This info session will help you better understand the program and explain how to prepare an application. 


Candidates must be members of the following communities: First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists, Deaf, hearing-impaired artists or artists with disabilities, racialized artists (including recently immigrated artists), and/or members of the LGBTQQIP2SAA+ community. More about the MAI
