Clear branding, leadership and collaboration will help to provide a boost to the Creative Industries in Northern Ireland. That is the message from the Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure in its report that will be published today on maximising the potential of the Creative Industries.
The Northern Ireland Assembly Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure today (Wednesday 17 April) helped to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Letterbox Club, which provides children in foster care (7-11yrs) with fun educational resources to improve literacy and numeracy skills. Internationally renowned poet, playwright and patron of the Letterbox Club Lemn Sissay MBE, who spent much of his younger life in care was guest of honour at today’s event.
