Friends helping friends. Peer support. Each one, teach one. Mentorship. Whatever words or phrases you use to describe it, no one makes it alone.
Towards the Future is a conversation sharing the experiences, pathways, and stories of photographer Anthony (Tony) Gebrehiwot, celebrity ghostwriter & journalist Pauleanna Reid, and their mentees Sarah Bashir and Kennishia Duffus. Moderated by poet, public speaker, and entrepreneur Dwayne Morgan, Towards the Future will share how mentorship has shaped their creative pathways, including gaining access to key people and spaces, receiving invaluable feedback and knowledge, and more. “Towards the Future” will continue the ongoing conversation about the importance and impact of mentorship in Black communities.
EVENT TAKEAWAY: A printed guide developed in collaboration with both mentors and mentees that will include tools and best practices in navigating mentorship in the role of a mentor or mentee.
