In 2002, the Rolex Awards for Enterprise, which typically focuses on exceptional achievements in the fields of science, the environment and exploration – gave rise to yet another initiative of empowerment. This time with the Arts in mind, called the Rolex Mentor and Protege Arts Initiative. The formula devised behind the whole effort is a fairly uncomplicated one. On a biennial basis, Rolex selects a board of advisors from seven disciples to nominate individuals who are captains within their industries, to serve as mentors to budding artists from their respective fields. The seven fields being: architecture, dance, film, literature, music, theatre and visual arts.
