A creative mentorship opportunity is waiting for you!
Published on 18 January 2023
Not sure where to go next on your creative journey? Unlock your future in less than 10 minutes by applying for our Young Creators Mentorship Program.
We want our arts and culture industry to blossom, that’s why in partnership with VicHealth we’ve created this program to provide opportunities and career progression for 18 – 25-year-olds on our Peninsula.
Our Young Creators Mentorship Program is perfect for you if:
- You want to learn from a creative professional working in the industry.
- It would help with any ongoing study or training activities.
- A new or different perspective is needed to develop your work.
- You need a formal reference for your resumé.
- You need to network and don’t know where to start.
- You’re looking to develop your industry knowledge.
We will provide four people with a suitable mentor for one day a week over two months to help start or continue your creative careers. We strongly encourage applicants from people with a disability, First Nations’ Australians and culturally or linguistically diverse people.
Your arts and culture future is waiting for you. We’re excited to read through your application.
I’m interested, where do I apply?
Our program is available to enter until Friday 24 February. For more information and to express your interest visit:

Hard copy forms are also available at Customer Service Centres and libraries.
