Guest Post: Edmonton Heritage Council & InterVivos 2019 Mentorship Program

In the summer of 2019, while coordinating the Heritage Community Investment Program during a maternity leave coverage, Soni Dasmohapatra initiated a mentorship pilot project. This initiative brought to life one of the key Actions of the City of Edmonton’s Connections & Exchanges: A 10-Year Plan to Transform Arts and Heritage in Edmonton. The plan recommends that mentorship programs should be available in the Heritage sector to build organizational and individual professional capacity for Heritage professionals to aid with succession and sustainability planning in the sector.
