FINDING an income through art was the main objective of a three-day workshop involving youths from the greater Labasa area.
The Discovering your Creative Voice through the Arts workshop organised by the US Embassy in collaboration with the Fiji Arts Council featured US-based artists Rise Up International creative director Jesse Roberts and Mosley Wotta lead singer Jason Graham.
The two artists brought a new form of income-generation through music and art.
"With very little amount of money, we showed them how to spray paint their own designs on T-shirts and from that they can sell those T-shirts for about $6 or $10," said Mr Roberts.
"We are trying to introduce the idea of art and how they capitalise on that and even make money out of it."
