Creative Entrepreneurs are back with their monthly instalment of The Circuit – a place for creative people to shake off their silos and deep dive into the ever-refreshing pool of London-based creativity.
This month they welcome Isabel Farchy, the founder of Creative Mentor Network – a charity dedicated to making the creative world more diverse and accessible through mentoring.
Whilst teaching English and Media at an academy in West London, Isabel was struck by the limited opportunities her talented students had in finding interesting work experience in the creative industry.
She founded Creative Mentor Network in 2015 to match diverse students from across London with employees in thriving creative companies. Her innovative solution has helped to demystify creative career paths for hundreds of young people, whilst simultaneously providing a unique opportunity for the employees at creative powerhouses such as Soho House, Weiden & Kennedy and Sony Music.
Join us to hear more about Isabel’s work and the unique challenges of running a charity that’s focused on the creative industry. We’ll then turn it over to you for a great party where you can share ideas over drinks, and if serendipity should have it, meet your next creative collaborator.
