“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.



Nearly 100 applications were received for the 5th jubilee generation of “Creative Mentorship” programme, and this time we received applications from more than 20 different cities, which we are particularly proud of. Candidates for future programme participants come from various fields of culture, art and the creative sector, including ballet artists, journalists, librarians, architects, designers, musicians, photographers, conservators and many others. We are thrilled with the interest, quality and variety of applications and we are pleased that we have managed to attract the attention of professionals from these areas.

As the number of participants is limited, 25 mentees can participate in the programme each year, the team  “Creative mentorship” has now a difficult task of reading and analyzing all applications and deciding on shortlisted candidates who will be  invited to an interview. We will announce the list of candidates that have been shortlisted  on Tuesday, May 14th, and the interviews for these candidates will be held from 18th to 26th May in Belgrade.

We vish to thank  everyone who applied, but also to those who distributed information about the programme and the call, to the media that published our call, to alumni and to friends of programme that reminded and encouraged potential mentees not to miss this opportunity.
