Some of the feedback received earlier this year asked about the potential of developing career support services. This request has been heard, planned and is now underway in the form of a Minding Creative Minds Pilot Mentorship Programme.
Minding Creative Minds director and mentorship programme co-ordinator, Emma Olohan Sarramida, says; “I am delighted to confirm we have completed our application and screenings process and are launching our first round of the mentoring programme this month. We had an overwhelming number of applications, and as programme co-ordinator I am delighted to say that Minding Creative Minds leadership has agreed to facilitate more than double the number of mentorships originally planned for October. We plan to continue to develop our career support service this autumn with topic specific masterclasses and peer circles launching before 2021 wraps up. We want to be able to support our creative sector in diverse ways to ensure needs are being met for those returning and seeking to return to their career as the pandemic eases.
