On 23 April the Playhouse offered a day to explore career opportunities in the creative industry through a variety of workshops taught by professional facilitators.
Creative Industries Career Workshops covered a range of topics, highlighting the idea that there are a multitude of employment options in the arts behind the curtain. Classes were taught on stage makeup, marketing and events, lighting and sound, directing, and costume making by professionals in the field.
The event was hosted by Artskills, a program within the Playhouse designed to teach job qualifications and literacy skills through an artistic medium.
"Yesterday was an incredible success" said Artskills coordinator Emma Jane Logue. "It's inspiring to see community members feeling a renewed sense of confidence and getting excited about learning."
The Playhouse is located at 5-7 Artillery Street in Derry~Londonderry. More information regarding events at the Playhouse and the Artskills program can be found at (028)71268027
