The mentors at The Gathering are skilled creative people who are available to help you within their fields of expertise. You can find mentors in the fields of programming, graphics and music production in the Creative Lounge every day.

The mentors can give you assistance on your own level, whether you are a beginner or already quite skilled yourself. Talking to the mentors can be a nice way to get introduced to the creative scene at The Gathering.

How to get help from a Mentor

There are a number of ways you can get in touch with the mentors:

  • Visit the Creative Lounge while at The Gathering. Contact the Creative Infodesk and explain what you want help with. The Creativia crew will help you get in contact with a mentor. If a suitable mentor is not available at the exact time you visit the lounge, they will get back to you whenever one gets available.
  • Mentors are looking for people to help, each day from 14:00 to 16:00 in The Creative Lounge
  • Ask a question in The Gathering's creative forums. Mentors check this forum regularly to answer questions.
  • Send an email directly to a mentor
  • Join #tg-creativia on EFnet and ask!

If you have any questions regarding the mentor arrangement, please contact

How does one become a mentor?

The Creativia crew chooses the mentors from the most prominent participants from the creative scene at TG. If you want to be a mentor, send an application to explaining your skills and how enthusiastic you are about teaching others. Each mentor gets a free Creative Ticket to The Gathering in exchange for helping out our newcomers.
