“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.



Whether you wish to develop your personal communication skills, understand and use different methods for learning and knowledge-sharing, or actively promote socially responsible mindset and action – this is the right place to start from. The Pool of Mentors will enable you to turn your valuable practical experience into a tool for support and development of young, active and prospective professionals.

Year by year, Creative Mentorship builds, gathers and supports a community of motivated and socially responsible individuals, dedicated to knowledge sharing among different generations and sectors, thereby connecting people that otherwise would not have a chance to meet and collaborate. Over the last four years, more than 150 individuals participated in the programme, changing the society in Serbia for the better and our aim is to increase this number every year.

The official Creative Mentorship programme cycle gathers 25 mentorship couples per year. After choosing 25 mentees that will take part in the upcoming cycle, CM invites 25 mentors from the Pool of Mentors, based on the needs, goals and challenges that mentees specify in their applications. By building a wide network of potential mentors, CM is able to provide better support for the mentees. At the same time, knowledge, skills, contacts and other resources available to mentors through the Pool of Mentors, can be valuable for their own personal and professional development. The Pool of Mentors currently numbers more than 100 members from different professional areas. Only a portion of them takes part in the active CM cycle; all other members have the opportunity to participate in the mentorship training, workshops, lectures and meetings, as well as in providing short-term support and advice to mentees. We would like to invite you to join the Pool of Mentors, become part of the team that shares the culture and idea of mentorship, and supports perspective professionals in the field of culture in Serbia!
