We are currently working on special projects with these national partners.  Our partner projects may target particular groups of young people, develop links between organisations or create new resources.


Family Arts Festival 
The Get Creative Family Arts Festival will take place between 9 October and 1 November 2015 and hundreds of organisations across the UK will programme arts events for all the family. In 2014, we ran a pilot project with the Family Arts Festival to explore how Arts Award can encourage families to get involved. Information on how Arts Award is supporting the Get Creative Family Arts Festival in 2015 will be available shortly.


We are working with the BFI to support the delivery of Arts Award as part of their Film Academy programme. The BFI Film Academy offers a real chance for talented 16-19-year-olds to be part of our future film industry by taking part in a range of course to develop their skills and experience in filmmaking. Find out more about how we are working together.

Lights, Camera Parliament

Run by Parliament’s Education Service, Lights, Camera, Parliament! invites young people aged 7-16 to submit a short film, or a script or a storyboard that responds to the question: ‘If you could make one law, what would it be?’. We worked with them to show how the film making process could count towards Bronze and Silver Arts Award.
