The Meet a Mentor programme takes place over four months. Through a structured series of workshops, sessions and meetings, mentors offer mentees support, encouragement and advice on how to get that bit closer to their chosen career path in the creative and digital industries. Mentees offer mentors a chance to work with a younger generation of creatives, impart valuable wisdom and learnings and holistically understand what the new generations bring and the challenges they face when entering the creative industries in this day and age.
Each evening’s structured sessions comprise time for the mentor and mentee to spend together working on the mentee’s goals, a group task led by a creative professional that all take part in, and end with a short TED-type talk from an inspirational speaker.
