Art Gallery and Confucius Institute Mentor Program

Art Gallery NSW and Confucius Institute Mentor Program aims to engage 10 Mandarin speaking students from the Confucius Institute at UNSW with the Community Ambassadors and artworks from the Gallery's exhibition program "Beyond Words: Calligraphic traditions of Asia", across a 5-week mentor program. Mentor sessions will take place weekly at the Art Gallery of New South Wales throughout March and April in 2017.

The mentor program will offer students an introduction to art and will develop additional language skills including how to interpret and discuss artworks. The program will culminate in a presentation at the Gallery in English and Mandarin to Gallery staff and the wider Mandarin Language Community Ambassador guiding body at an evening event at the April.
