ROLEX : THE ROLEX MENTOR AND PROTÉGÉ ARTS INITIATIVE
Launched in 2002, the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative is unique. Seeking out young, highly talented artists worldwide, the Arts Initiative brings them together with great masters for a year of creative collaboration. Working with expert teams of artistic advisors, Rolex organises the entire programme from its headquarters in Geneva. An extraordinary roll-call of international artists has already taken part as mentors. This film features Wole Soyinka (Nobel Prize in Literature Award winner) mentoring Tara June Winch, an Australian of Aboriginal, and English heritage.
