More jobs needed for creatives

Artist calls for more opportunities for talent

There must be more job opportunities on the Island for creative professionals, according to local artist Juan Moore.

He says finding employment is a struggle for arts graduates, with any creative projects often coming 'off their own back' for little repayment.

As a member of the Isle of Man Arts Council, Mr Moore championed the idea of having an artist-in-residence at the new Henry Bloom Noble Primary School in Douglas.

He says the new school is the perfect place for a budding artist to get their feet of the ground.
