Drive to create hundreds of arts and media jobs in 1,000 days

A drive to generate hundreds of jobs in the arts over the next 1,000 days is being launched.

The event at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay aims to create more work in the media, music and theatre.

The Building a Creative Nation programme wants companies to take on paid apprentices and has been backed by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

Full time apprentices will receive £3,600 towards wages.

Funding for apprenticeships in Wales is available from the Welsh government's Young Recruits programme.

The project UK-wide hopes to create up to 50,000 jobs by 2016.
