Creativity Works Artists Peer-Mentoring Programme

Creativity Works is starting a brand-new peer-mentoring programme in response to conversations they have had with artists, at all stages of their careers, about what support would be most useful for them.

Creativity Works will match mentees with mentors, and give you advice, support and training so that you can get the greatest impact from your relationship. You will decide when, how and for how long you would like to meet.

Being a mentor or a mentee has numerous benefits including:

What are the benefits for Mentees? 

  • Being encouraged and empowered in personal development
  • Being helped to identify and achieve career goals
  • Increasing your confidence
  • Developing and maintaining a broader perspective on career options and opportunities
  • Having access to a senior role model
  • Developing mentoring/coaching skills

What are the benefits for Mentors?

  • New perspectives and insight into your own practice
  • Opportunity for self-reflection, and personal satisfaction
  • Developing mentoring/coaching skills

  • Personal fulfilment, particularly satisfaction from seeing mentee progression

Additionally, you will receive: 

  • Guidance and support from Creativity Works staff
