About Us

StART supports emerging artists. We work to empower artists with the skills, networks, and resolve necessary to pursue their chosen vocation.

We run a festival and a mentorship program:


The StART Festival gives emerging artists an chance to present their work. We provide artists with the structure and resources to successful showcase their creations to a new public.

The Festival is a great opportunity for artists who consider themselves to be in school or in the process of learning their art form.


The StART Mentorship Program is designed to empower emerging artists by paying them to make art, fostering professional development, and creating opportunities to connect with mentors.

The Mentorship serves artist who have completed their training and are trying to enter the professional realm.
