“Rising’s mentoring programme picked me up at exactly the right moment. It’s amazing how much direction and momentum I’ve generated through that one- to-one support.”
Laura Waite, Rising Associate Artist
Our mentoring programme sits at the heart of Rising’s offer for those engaging in our projects. We currently have 50 arts professionals supporting the programme who we carefully match with young people looking for professional development, support, challenge and advice. The benefits of mentoring can be huge, including:
- raising confidence and self esteem
- developing the skills to set clear timelines and goals
- increased understanding of career path options and routes
- completing projects to a high standard
- improved CVs and portfolios
Many of the matches made so far have resulted in young artists being offered internship opportunities and freelance work.
Take a look below at just some of the arts professionals that are currently working with us, with more being uploaded every week.
