“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.



On Thursday, September 27th, at 6 pm in the ceremonial hall of the Rectorate of the University of Arts, Kosančićev venac 29, the “Creative Mentorship” organizes, as a part of the debating-educational programme,   a discussion on the financing culture and art from the perspective of donors and sponsors.

At the round table “Other pesrpective – financing culture and art from the perspective of donors and sponsors” you will have the opportunity to hear more different companies, foundations, embassies and institutions that are donors or sponsors of cultural events, art projects and institutions, and to find out why and how they support the cultural sector, what are their priorities, strategies, methods.

The aim of this discussion is to inform young professionals from the cultural and creative industries about the possibilities and potential ways of financing their projects and organizations.
