“Bridging the Gap – new mentoring methods for young creative entrepreneurs in Europe” is an international project which aims to work on brand new digital and innovative tools, supporting the development of mentoring in cultural and creative sectors, with partners from 6 countries of the European Union (Poland, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, Slovakia and Greece). The tools may be useful for teachers and mentors of artistic professions, they also emphasise the development of entrepreneurial skills, essential for young artists entering the European market of the creative industry.
