“I am very aware of the importance of the performance arts; they provide a cultural identity, social skills, self-confidence, and can act as an expressive outlet for our thoughts and feelings. The performing arts also allow a space for us to imagine a world that is changing at an incredible pace and the imagination and creativity of our young people will help us to make that journey.”

Entertainment is one of the top industries that focuses on promoting talent and creativity. It is all evident from the countless tech developments used in movies, and the talented acting that we get to watch on a daily basis. While it is important to focus on other formal industries, entertainment should get sufficient support, especially when it comes to recognising talent and creativity.
