By becoming a member, you’ll get exclusive access to valuable tools, insights and a community of like-minded creatives with the passion to achieve greatness and make a positive difference in the world.
 
Are you a current student or recent graduate in a Media, Communications or Arts degree? Are you feeling a little scared or confused about navigating the real world? Are you passionate about a range of different things and don’t know know where to start?
 
If you’re constantly wondering things like:
 
“Am I on the right track?”
“What do I really want to do with my life?”
“Does the world even care about what I”m doing?”
 
We’re so glad that you’re here.
 
Because here at The Mentorship, we totally get where you’re coming from because we’ve been there ourselves! It’s our mission to help you answer these questions in ways we wish existed back then.
 
As much as technology has advanced and our suite of options have broadened, we can still feel limited as young people to build the confidence, to earn the respect and to simply be given a chance by older generations. We crave opportunities to gain experience in the real workforce so we can start creating a sustainable future for ourselves and the generations that follow us.
 
The challenge feels even greater for us in creative industries, where people don’t seem to see or understand the value in what we do – in the words we write, the music we make, the stories we film.
 
But we do.
 
We refuse to believe that the only options are to be a starving artist or a slave to the 9-5.
 
There is another way – multiple ways in fact!
 
The Mentorship is here to help you learn how to harness your creativity and find passion in what appears to be the mundaneness of adulthood. We’re here to help you find your own unique creative path whilst being a part of a community that not only gets it, but truly believes in it.

The Mentorship is a creative collective, so everyone on board is here not only to find support, but to give it back as well.

 
We are creative resources for one another, a collection of like-minded artists who love making and doing things for positive impact on the people around us, our communities, wider society and the world.
