When someone suffers from a slow start to a career in the entertainment industry, they’ll often fall on the phrase “it’s about who you know.” But when someone succeeds in a sustained career in the entertainment industry, they’ll look to alter the phrase: “it’s about who you’ve learned from.”
A mentor's guidance can transform creative paths and illuminate industry nuances, opening doors that have historically been kept locked.
Starting this summer, Adim is proud to announce our new Mentorship Program. This initiative will bring our community of creators together with an incredible cohort of Mentors with experience ranging from traditional entertainment (i.e. Showtime) to leading interactive media companies (i.e. Audible, Spotify). Our mentors share Adim's commitment to nurturing creative talent and are excited to support burgeoning creators take their next steps on the road they once traveled.
To kick off the program, we’ll be hosting a series of creative showcases, offering an initial platform for dialogue and connection between mentors and early creators. This marks the start of a new approach to mentorship at Adim, bridging the distance between established professionals and emerging creators.
Adim remains committed to nurturing artists, guiding their creative careers and equipping them with tools for success. We envision a future where all storytellers have the opportunity to share their narratives, and mentors can form fulfilling relationships that enhance their own storytelling abilities. This commitment to a fairer and more accessible creative process is at the heart of Adim.
