What is Arts Award?

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that support anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through setting personal challenges in art forms of their choice - from fashion to film making, pottery to poetry.

Offered at five different levels (Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver & Gold), young people get to:

  • discover the enjoyment of participating in any art form

  • develop their creativity, communication and leadership skills

  • learn new skills and share them with others

  • get to work with or experience the work of creative arts professionals

  • gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment
