Being a Creative means putting yourself out there, but sometimes raw talent and drive isn’t enough to get you where you want to go.
It’s near impossible for young creatives to get funding — private financial institutions have never favored creators and artists. A lack of resources, absence of mentorship and little to no financial support can make it harder to take your creative passions to the next level.
For two days in July 2022, emerging Creatives could apply for an appointment at our bank in Brooklyn, New York. Successful applicants were offered a one hour session with one of our three advisors, Olivia, Sophia and Danny — young established artists who are recognized and respected in their fields. During one hour sessions, they offered thoughtful and impactful advice based on their own struggles and successes.
– Danny Cole, Advisor
Applicants also received career boosting resources and supplies such as camera equipment, art supplies, computers and studio spaces. As a champion of Creatives, the Herschel Supply Bank of Creativity provided them with real mentorship and tools to help them launch their careers and continue chasing their passions.
