Mentoring the Next Generation

Mentoring Opportunity

Delivered across 12 months in Broome throughout 2024-2025, the mentorships will empower early career content creators to reach their full potential through the opportunity to grow life and industry-specific skills.


Co-designed with Djugun-Yawuru photographer / filmmaker / designer / poet and Lead Mentor Michael Jalaru Torres, the creative industry mentorships will be delivered in a culturally safe learning environment in Broome, and provide employment pathways for First Nations peoples in cultural leadership and digital media roles.

Skills development

Mentees will gain confidence in diverse media production capabilities, and deepen their practice and understanding of the arts sector through one-on-one mentoring, group media production, peer review, peer networking, and online training. Mentees will be expected to undertake self-directed learning, develop a portfolio of creative works, and undertake industry work experiences to complete their learning.


  • Increased digital media skills in the region
  • Pathways to self-representation & strengthened ownership over the media processes
  • Pathways to live and work on Country
  • Expansion of an Aboriginal media workforce for hire
  • Expansion of culturally safe content creation teams
