SQ Mentorship

SQ Mentorship is a three-year program (2017-2019) delivered as part of Screen Queensland’s commitment to diversity and achieving gender parity in the screen industry.

Screen Queensland (SQ) will provide three outstanding early to mid career screen or game practitioners $20,000 each to support them to undertake a self-structured mentorship program designed to elevate their professional practice. Mentorships will be available for:

  • One female screen or games practitioner
  • One Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander screen or games practitioner
  • One screen or games practitioner from a diverse community, including people with a disability, people from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, LGBTQIA people and regional Queenslanders.

Brisbane-based Kim Allom is the recipient of the 2017 SQ Mentorship.
