“Creative mentorship” affirms mentoring as a tool of personal and professional development, strengthens the capacities of the cultural sector and provides support to prospective professionals interested in developing, networking and sharing knowledge and experience. We want to build, gather and support a community of motivated and socially responsible individuals that will contribute to the development of a society based on creativity, culture, knowledge and mutual cooperation.



ArtNexus, in partnership with Creative Mentorship, is excited to announce our next workshop in Motivation! On 30 May 2024, we will host a workshop focused on motivation. The “Motivation workshop” will aim to explore various factors that impact our motivation, identify individual motivational factors, share ideas and techniques for self-motivation and understanding others’ motivation, and discover different approaches to motivating others. 

The workshop employed a facilitated approach, incorporating individual and group tasks, panel discussions, and practical scenarios to enhance participants’ understanding of motivation in real-life situations and challenges. Throughout the afternoon, we will be examining the source and factors that influence motivation, such as external and internal factors, the desire to prove others wrong, or the awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. By understanding ourselves and our motivations, we can effectively tackle any external challenges that come our way. 

There is no right or wrong motivation, as long as it drives us to give our best and work towards our goals. Whether it’s indulging in our favorite treats, engaging in creative activities, or finding solace in stargazing, if it helps us stay energized, gather our thoughts, or boost our sense of pride, we should embrace it.
