Are you ready to embark on an inspiring journey of personal growth, learning, and community impact?
We are seeking participants in our dynamic and transformative youth project, Horizons.
This initiative empowers young individuals like you to reach their full potential while making a positive difference in our community.
Horizons is a creative industry mentoring and career development program for NSW regional youth. The project will run over 18 months and will support a total of 75 young people from across NSW.
Horizons is a state-wide regional project that provides direct intensive support to young people wanting to pursue a career in the creative industries. We aim to provide participants with new pathways to explore work and study opportunities in the creative industries.
Participants will be paired with an experienced mentor from their chosen field based in regional NSW. Each mentoring relationship will address the needs and interests of each individual and enable participants to connect into a network of peers to build strong state-wide networks early in their career.
The program will create access and opportunity to seek pathways for creative industry career development by addressing the void of skills development and opportunities for young creative people and aims to provide pathways for employment in the arts sector.
The result of this extended mentoring program will be shared through a creative industry showcase development and led by the project participants highlighting each mentoring project and the range of creative practices and industries represented. The showcase will enable the conversation on the opportunities open to regional young people, in this dynamic and evolving industry, to continue beyond the project.
