The Mentorship Progamme

The Sutton Report ‘Evaluating Access’ identifies mentoring as one of the most effective methods of increasing the number of disadvantaged young people at University. The benefits at entry level and throughout a chosen career are quantifiable.

To increase accessibility and enhance the social mobility of the art industry, we have launched a free mentoring scheme! This will connect prospective and established candidates with professionals from the art industry via our website and app.


We have compiled a volunteer list of hundreds of colleagues and professionals, spanning every facet of the art industry. Once an Easel candidate has browsed the Learn section of our website and decided they would like to be mentored, they can register to our Mentoring Programme.

Mentees and mentors will be matched using the data accrued from their registration forms. They can be matched with skill sets that they would like to learn more about or they can be linked with a professional who holds the exact position they are interested in.
