JL LEGACY FUND CREATIVE ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM
The JL Legacy Fund Mentorship Engagement Program is a participant-driven program that connects a
selected group of emerging creatives in film, photography, visual art, music, writing, theatre, and
acting and their submitted projects with established creative professionals who can provide
expert-level advice and networking opportunities to help them. With this program, the Fund
seeks to identify and support emerging talent throughout the Atlantic region. This one-year mentorship
and guidance program brings together the participants with their mentors through in-person and digital channels.
The program’s success will be the measured by the mentee’s completed creative projects at the end of the mentorship.
There will be check ins every month with mentors and mentees to ensure they are working well together and that the
projects are moving forward. A conflict resolution setup will be in place. Backup mentors will be available if working relationships
are not working out. There will be surveys as well for mentees and mentors to fill out before they begin to gage what assistance
can be given.
Eligible creatives: people with projects they have undertaken that are facing challenges and need assistance
(art project, script, music composition, theatre productions, short film, media installation, poetry book, novel etc...)
The outcomes will be: finished creative projects that were supervised by the mentors to their completion and with their
guidance for a year-long period.
