The Contemporary Art Network (CAN!) in association with INCCA (International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art) is proud to announce its upcoming Mentoring Program consisting of two tracks; the presentation scheme, and speed mentoring session at the upcoming Annual Meeting (AIC 48) in Salt Lake City. 

Launched in 2018 by INCCA, it has been designed to operate around specific short-term activities, such as conferences. The first edition took place during the SBMK summit in November 2018 and was a great success. Then in March 2019, a lively speed-mentoring session at the NACCA conference in Maastricht took place, followed by a session at Future Talks in Munich, November 2019. More information can be found here: . The speed mentoring session will take place on Friday, May 22nd, at 1:00 - 1:50 PM in the Exhibit Hall, Salt Palace Convention Center.
