Arts Mentorship Program

The Suitcase in Point Arts Mentorship Program (AMP) is about training and mentorship. AMP provides new generation artists in Niagara opportunities to build personal and professional relationships, and strengthen discipline-based artistic practices.

After receiving generous support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, AMP was redesigned to undertake the following:

  • The Nest Residency, which offers emerging artists in the Niagara Region opportunities to develop their artistic craft and process;
  • Technical theatre internships and workshops and in-depth volunteer opportunities;
  • Provide access to Suitcase in Point’s studio, audio, lighting and video equipment;
  • Mentorship in theatre, music and festival technical and producing skills;
  • Mentorship in producing and programming;
  • A youth-led committee to develop and carry out for-and-by youth initiatives at In the Soil Arts Festival.
