Future Academy – our mentorship programme designed to help young people break into the creative industries – is officially back. This time, there’s a twist.
A quick recap. Last year, THE FACE worked with Moncler to found Future Academy, inviting creatives from underrepresented backgrounds and non-academic pathways to enrol in a hands-on course. Fifty-two students were invited to participate in over a dozen classes spanning art direction, writing, photography and music, granting them a solid foundation for carving out a creative career.
Now, after a super successful first year, it’s time for the sequel – Future Academy 2.0: Genius Generation – backed by the Moncler Genius philosophy of collaboration and cultivation of cutting-edge talent and ideas. Taking things up a level, we’ve enrolled twice as many mentees to work in-person with THE FACE and Moncler, while another 50 from Paris, Berlin, Milan and the UK will join us for online seminars over the six-week course.
We opened up applications earlier this year and hundreds of you entered; with a vat of coffee and the help of employment experts A New Direction, we whittled it down and confirmed our Class of 2022. That’s you – welcome!
This six week course offers masterclasses from Moncler, THE FACE team and a number of notable names from the worlds of photography, fashion, branding and publishing (all will be revealed!) with opportunities for networking and co-creation along the way.
The future starts here.
