The Room to Bloom mentorship programme provides a boost to feminist emerging artists’ international visibility and an opportunity for them to work out a network in Palermo and in Europe.

The programme is dedicated to feminist artists, mostly based in Europe, who are from migrant backgrounds. Through the programme, the Room to Bloom Community and mentors accompany emerging artists in their professional development.

There will be two editions of the mentorship programme. Each edition counts with two mini residencies for eight participants. Mentorship programme I: one residency in September 2022, second residency in May 2023; Mentorship programme II: one residency in October 2023, second residency in May 2024.

The programme proposes two mini residencies of 15 days each to eight artists. The mini residencies provide space for artists to encounter each other and exchange and interact with the city of Palermo. 

Each artist can choose five mentoring sessions from a wide range of offers, built upon the basis of the competencies and interests of the mentors. They can be technical sessions on an artistic technique or focus on other areas of artistic development. The mentorship sessions will partly take place in Palermo, and partly be hosted are online between the two residencies.
