Intergenerational Co-Mentoring - Part 1

Session Synopsis

“When something good happens, I think about us.”

What can transpire when a 60-year old and a 20-year old together investigate art making, philosophy, and teaching artistry? What is learned, unlearned, and relearned? How does each mentor serve as a conduit to generational thinking? Maybe the big issues facing us need intergenerational thinking and art making to instigate substantial change?

Intergenerational Co-Mentoring dissolves hierarchy and lifts up shared wisdom. It is a relationship built on respect, curiosity, and humility. 

During this Think Tank, the collective explored intergenerational co-mentorship and its potential for individual growth. Leads, Zoey Peacock Jones and Jean E. Taylor, heard various perspectives on mentoring, beginning co-mentoring processes, and sharing current findings and creations thus far. 

In Fall 2022, they plan to offer a second part that will encouraging participants to “bring a co-mentor” to investigate collaborative impact, multiple perspectives and innovative actions.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
