“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.


We are working on an international journal of mentorship in the culture sector

In cooperation with the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater, the University of the Basque Country, the University of Antwerp, the Latvian Academy of Culture, and a network of organizations gathered in an international consortium dedicated to research and affirmation of mentorship in cultural and artistic management, the “Creative Mentorship” team is preparing an international journal on this topic.

The collection will include texts by colleagues from various European institutions and organizations that implement and research mentoring in their local educational and cultural environments and provide insight into various existing programs, their methodologies, goals and results, examples of good practice, guidelines for those planning to start mentoring programs in culture, as well as to draw attention to complex and numerous topics and issues that need to be kept in mind on that occasion.

Experts from the “Creative Mentorship” team, which has been carrying through a mentorship program in the domain of culture, arts, creative industries, and media in Serbia since 2012, participate in the preparation of the collection related to the introduction to the topic of mentorship, theory and practice of mentorship using online technologies and tools, and how mentorship programs contribute to the promotion of diversity and equality within the sectors of culture, arts, and creative industries.

The editor of this publication, which will be published digitally and in English, and will be free to download, is Professor Annukka Jyrämä from the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater.
