ARTogether and Oakland Art Murmur are proud to offer the Artist Mentorship program, an Oakland-based program for refugee and immigrant artists. Launched in January 2022, the program welcomes artists of all crafts, levels, and experiences looking to expand their network, learn new skills, develop their career, and obtain professional guidance. Throughout the program, participants are paired with a mentor artist with compatible interests, artistic craft specialties, experience levels, and/or goals for the mentorship program. 

The program includes:

  • Six 1:1 monthly meetings with an Oakland based mentor artist.
  • Six gatherings with artists and arts professionals (virtually or in-person at local Oakland art venues). 
  • Three professional development opportunities.
  • Limited financial support.



The 2022 program mentees are paired with experienced, capable artists according to their interests, goals, needs, and desires for the program. ARTogether is proud to introduce the mentors of the 2022 Mentorship Program. They are inspired, accomplished artists who bring joy and connectivity to the program as they guide the ten mentees participating in the program this year.
