For the last few months I’ve been developing a mentoring scheme called ‘We Are DOPE’ - DOPE standing for Defining Our Potential & Excellence, it’s a scheme that’ll fall under @wearelaua. It’s all about matching up young people between the ages of 16-25 with an industry mentor that they’ll work with for 6 months on a project with a clear outcome. We’re rolling it out in fashion first (music and poetry will soon follow) and already have some incredible mentors on board as well as a great development package for the first cohorts that we’re still building which includes masterclasses with some amazing people in the industry. As the launch is slowly creeping up I’m doing a final call to people who may want to get involved. Perhaps you have years of experience in fashion (or something that relates to fashion) and want to be a mentor, or have a service you would like to offer in-kind, or maybe you’d like to host a masterclass for the mentees in a specific area (digital media, design, business dev. etc) or perhaps your company wants to partner with us. If you’re interested or know someone that might be or just want more information please drop me an email on fiona@loveandurbanarts.com. Feel free to share and repost - the support is much appreciated. Thank you :) #FutureLeaders #WeAreDOPEUK #LAUA #Fashion #Mentors
