Young people have been getting ‘in tune’ with their creative side during an inspirational music event in Inverness.
As the hit rock musical festival ‘Monsterfest’ made its return to the Highland Capital for its second year at the weekend, secondary pupils and music students were given the opportunity to hear first-hand from industry professions about the career opportunities available.
Students from Alness Academy, Kingussie High School, Fortrose Academy and music students from North Highland College, Alness campus, were among those taking part.
The event – held at the Ironworks – featured a headline session from Steve Goldby, who runs music media company Metaltalk, managing artists including former Iron Maiden singer Paul D’ianno.
Andy Maxtone, programme manager for organisers Developing the Young Wworkforce Inverness and Central Highland said: “This is the second year that we’ve held an event during Monstersfest specifically for young people to inspire them with the huge variety of careers in the creative industry.
“The Highlands are a hotbed of creativity, with the industry diverse and fast-growing and continuing to make an important contribution to the region’s economy and cultural life.”
