National Mentoring Program for Young and Emerging Artists
As Australia’s largest artist mentoring program, JUMP identifies and promotes excellence in artistic practice amongst artists aged 18-30, who are in the first five years of their professional practice.
JUMP supports artists to undertake a one-on-one mentorship with a leading professional of their choice, focused on a funded creative project.
JUMP artists also access online profiling and professional development opportunities, and significantly expand their national network during the 10-month mentorship period.
Youth Arts Queensland manages JUMP nationally, based on its decade-long mentoring track record.
JUMP is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, and delivered in collaboration with State and Territory Delivery Partners.
