Youth investigate entertainment careers

There’s no business like show business and Nanaimo Youth Services Association’s Youth Employment Centre hopes to direct unemployed and out of school youth to the spotlight.

The centre is hosting a series of free workshops on careers in arts and entertainment Wednesday (Nov. 16) at 290 Bastion St.

The arts and entertainment field in the Harbour City has something for everyone. Whether you’re interested in music, dance, acting or art, Nanaimo offers weekly opportunities to enjoy local talent.

The centre has booked a variety of professionals from such diverse areas as, photography, journalism, radio and music production.

Site tours and presentations will include CHLY radio station, Vancouver Island University Theatre, Mind’s Eye Production members and more. There are also opportunities to explore creative possibilities, network with people in the industry and more.

Participants will get a variety of information and a general introduction to the industry through local experts, learn about training opportunities, and visit on site establishments.

For more information, please call the Youth Employment Centre staff at 250-754-8101.
