Briony Carros on talent drain 

Director of Visual Arts Nova Scotia

…on talent drain 

While other cities are trying to find ways to attract talented, creative people, Halifax needs to work on retaining them. We have an incredible asset, hundreds of students graduate from post-secondary institutions every year, but the municipality is squandering opportunities to develop or encourage the infrastruture necessary to keep them here. The amount of talent that comes through this city is staggering yet it is near impossible to keep them here. The prospect of earning just above minimum wage and lack of affordable space to work leads to mass exodus after a few years of trying to make it work. It is disheartening to watch year after year, graduates from NSCAD who find a community, create opportunities but eventually leave in frustration.
