Friends helping friends. Peer support. Each one, teach one.

Supporting one another is one of the bedrocks of Black community. Navigating life, artistic pursuits, and careers can be difficult. Mentorship helps you find the resources, gain the skills, and open the doors to help you navigate your way to success.

Mentorship plays a key role in developing and shaping careers within the arts, from meeting the right people and building connections, gaining resources, opportunities, and more. A rich and longstanding tradition, mentorship is a great way to share knowledge, form healthy and supportive relationships, and empower you to visualize, pursue, and secure a path forward to success.
