The Department of Economic Development Launches New Creative Industries Booklet
20 February 2017
A new online booklet has been launched for the Creative Industries sector.
The booklet titled ‘Build a Career in the Creative Industries’ focuses on creative industries which produce wealth and jobs through the creation and exploitation of ideas using individual creativity, skills and talent.
Daphne Caine MHK, Political Member at the Department of Economic Development with responsibility for Creative Industries, commented:
‘Creativity and innovation are key skills that can facilitate economic growth throughout all sectors of the economy. Creative Industries in the Isle of Man offer a range of diverse and exciting opportunities, often celebrating our unique culture and heritage. The Department of Economic Development is able to offer support to Creative Industry businesses via our grants assistance schemes, by providing networking opportunities and facilitating a wide range of projects which frequently include film and television productions.’
Jane Jelski, Senior Manager for Special Projects at the Department, added:
‘The Department also works with a range of partners to support collaboration and celebrate grass roots creative activity in the Isle of Man. This has included support for a range of events, workshops and regular industry skills development evenings held at Noa Bakehouse.’
Sub sectors included within the Creative Industries include advertising and marketing, architecture, crafts, design, IT, publishing, museums and heritage, performing and visual arts and film.
Build a Career in the Creative Industries is available to download at: http://www.whereyoucan.com/ibweb/res/pdf//Creative-Industries%202017.pdf
