with Inspiring Women
There are so many incredible women who are making waves within the opera industry. SWAP’ra will establish an official mentoring scheme where experienced conductors, directors, designers, singers, agents, stage managers and others in the industry can offer support and advice to colleagues at the early stages of their careers. We can all be inspired by these icons from our industry and realise that there is so much we can offer and achieve.
This scheme will establish the foundation of our artistic community, fostering the next generation of talent by providing access to leading industry practitioners. Drawing inspiration from the #MentorHer campaign, the scheme will particularly encourage the men currently in senior positions to reach out to women in the hope that it eventually becomes commonplace for every artist - male or female - to share share their craft with the next generation.
We'll be releasing more information on this scheme soon. If you are interested, please subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of the home page, email us via the button below or join our Facebook group for updates.
