Creative Business Programme Mentors

Creative Business Programme

The CBP is fortunate to be supported by a group of mentors, who offer their time and knowledge in regular one-to-one meet-ups with their mentee. The mentors come from a variety of backgrounds including experienced artists, entrepreneurs, professionals from local museums and galleries and academics both from UCA and other institutions.
