Charlie Citron: ‘My objective as a mentor is to understand the professional goals and needs of the artist. We review together how their personal strategies are synchronized with their goals, to create dialogue around the quality of the work, career opportunities, and how to solve practical and artistic problems in each professional situation. I focus on internationalism in art and how artists can make themselves more visible and independent on the local and international scene. Internationalism is a local and global state of mind. Each artist can discuss every aspect of their work and can bring projects to the table such as: exhibitions, presentations, portfolio reviews, writing about your work, subsidy applications, post graduate education, and networking. Studio and gallery visits and practical discussions will be important in exploring how to connect and participate.'
'Self-empowerment via financial support, the market place, alternative initiatives and how to realize your projects at each stage of development will be key in the talks. There are many different art worlds. Every community is a potential niche for artistic activity. This can be in a museum, a gallery, a village, on-site event, public project or intervention. Diversity creates opportunities for an artist and stimulates artistic growth, dialogue and production. This awareness of potential enables you to discover and choose in which context to participate and realize your goals.'
'I am very open to mentor artists at many different stages of development. My philosophy is to help you achieve more satisfying and successful results in your work and public communication. I will ask questions about how you feel as an artist given different situations, to make visible your artistic patterns and choices, so you can anticipate and create personal strategies that will help you navigate in the art world.’
