Horizons: Mentors – Expressions of Interest


Closes midnight 21 February 2024. Become a Mentor for this exciting Regional NSW Youth Project.

We’re looking for practicing artists based in regional NSW who have a passion for supporting the next generation of creatives.

EoI closes midnight Wednesday 21 February 2024.


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. Our aim is to provide participants with new pathways to explore work and study opportunities in the creative industries.

Participants will be connected with an experienced mentor from their chosen field who is 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 careers.

There are plans to share the experiences of the participants and mentors at the culmination of the project, highlighting the range of creative practice and industries represented.  Our aim is to draw attention to the opportunities open to regional young people in the dynamic and evolving creative industries.  The form of this ‘showcase’ will be developed in partnership with the participants.
