CREATIVE MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME
Do you have a need to ask for advice from someone whom you believe could provide you with relevant knowledge and experience? Do you want to share the challenges you face with someone reliable, talk about available options or possibilities that may occur, but that you have not even thought about? Are you interested in the life path of the people you admire – how they reached their goals and overcame obstacles?
If your answer is YES, you are in the right place!
Creative Mentorship is the first mentorship programme in Serbia which tackles the issue of personal and professional development of upcoming leaders in the field of culture. It aims to promote mentorship as a way of lifelong learning and exchange of knowledge and experience between an established professional, the mentor, and emerging professional, the mentee. We are on a mission to develop and support a community of motivated and socially responsible individuals who would contribute to the society based on creativity, culture, knowledge and collaboration.
Each cycle of the Creative Mentorship programme gives the opportunity to 25 mentees, upcoming leaders in the field of culture, to be supported by mentors, established professionals from different fields. Through the programme, talented, dedicated, and engaged young professionals, active in the field of culture, match with mentors, chosen according to their needs and interests. A variety of activities, training and events offer to the mentees new insights, contacts and information.
The Creative Mentorship programme has a non-profit character and is free of charge for the mentees, thanks to the numerous patrons of the programme from the private, public and civil sectors from Serbia and abroad.
Also, in order to increase capacities related to mentoring and promote the idea of mentorship, we have developed a know-how base and handbook that are available on this site, and we organise public debates, speed-dating events etc.
The programme Creative Mentorship was launched in 2012.
