Rolex watches supports young artists initiative

Rolex Submariner Date Watch with Green Bezel and Black DialSome Rolex watches may be a bonus gift for a group of talented individuals who have been selected to take part in a scheme launched by the brand.

The Rolex Mentor and Protege Arts Initiative was founded in 2002 and aims to find a group of gifted youngsters to collaborate with professionals in several fields.

These subject areas are dance, film, literature, music, theatre and visual arts and the internship lasts for one year, Art Daily reports.

Rebecca Irvin, head of philanthropy at Rolex SA, said: "We are confident that the exceptional, young talents will gain enduring benefits from this special access to the great artists of our time."

Organised by a Rolex watches team based at the company's headquarters in Geneva, each protege receives their own unique programme of learning, as well as a $25,000 (16,472) grant.

For the 2010-2011 initiative, six people from Australia, Jordan, Lebanon, South Africa and the US have been selected.

Anish Kapoor, who studied at the Chelsea School of Art and Design, was among the panel selecting this year's proteges.
