NuoraMentors is a mentoring project for young circus companies during 2017–18. The project is carried out by CircusInfo Finland with the support of Finnish Cultural Foundation.
The project is divided into three parts: 1. Production support to companies for employing a producer. 2. An individual mentoring programme, containing either artistic or productional mentoring. 3. Master classes and intensive workshops provided for all in the field.
Companies are selected to the mentoring programme through an open call. The mentors are handpicked according to the needs of the selected individuals. The mentors and mentees will meet four times during the year of 2018.
The aim of the project is to support the development of the circus field in Finland on a long-term basis. The project is based on the good practices of a previous project for young companies during 2015–16 supported by the Ministry of culture and education. NuoraMentors is supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation during 2017–18.
