What happens after Jewelcamp1:
Ten sessions with the mentee’s mentor are planned for 2014, consisting of 1 hour sessions, or smaller sessions through eg email and/or smaller Skype sessions.
After Jewelcamp each mentee will make contact with their mentor to discuss a mutual schedule convenient for both parties. One exhibition is planned for 2014: Toi Pōneke, opening Fr 21 November 2014.

The 10 mentor feedback sessions are divided up between May and December 2014. This will be dependent of the mentee’s and mentor’s own timeline. Each mentee will have a slightly different pathway, due to mentor and mentee’s home/work pressures, modes and style of working, etc.

Each individual session:
Before each scheduled feedback session the mentee will work on a structure, preparing how to show their models/experiments, pictures, ideas, discuss research etc and prepare for questions.
