Arts Emergency


Ali & Tony Mentor Pair at Celebration event

Are you looking for a mentor? • Are you interested in studying an arts or humanities degree? • Would you like a career in the arts or media? • Do you want advice from experts in the creative and cultural industries?

Arts Emergency mentors can set up studio time, set visits, work placements and auditions. They’ll help with coursework, portfolios and UCAS so you can achieve your goals.

In 2021 we will offer:

• a year-long one-on-one mentoring scheme for 16-18 year olds who are interested in the arts or humanities;
• and mentoring opportunities for 18 – 25 year olds with an interest in the creative industries.

How do I apply?

Applications for mentoring will open in Autumn 2020. Please sign up below and we’ll email you when applications open with details on how to apply.


If successful, you will be matched up and invited to meet your mentor in January 2021. You’ll meet once a month for a year and together you will focus on your goals. Your mentor will help by offering advice, guidance and work experience opportunities, as well as helping you to build your confidence and connections.
