Our Vision

The arts provide the prism through which we can first envision, and then build, a better and more just world.

– Camille Zamora, Turn The Spotlight Advisor


At Turn The Spotlight, we believe systemic change is crucial. We also believe that one-on-one mentoring can have real impact, particularly in an industry where so many professionals are freelancers working outside an established institutional framework.

Our mission is to identify, nurture, and empower leaders – and in turn, to illuminate the path to a more equitable future in the arts.

We offer mentorship by and for exceptional women, people of color, and other equity-seeking groups, with a particular interest in supporting artists who are using their talents and skills to strengthen their communities and pursue social justice.
