Discover Arts Award where you live and work
Arts Award is open to everyone across the UK looking to recognise young people’s creative development.
Get started in the UK
If you are based within the UK, it is possible to book a place at any available training course, or to arrange for a trainer to come into your organisation. Costs for training and moderation are the same across the UK.
Support in England - Bridge organisations
One of the key areas of the Bridge organisations’ work is to drive participation in Arts Award across each region. Each Bridge organisation creates its own offer to support the development of Arts Award within their region.
The 10 Bridge organisations are:
* Norfolk and Norwich Festival covers Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
** Royal Opera House Bridge covers Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, the unitary authority of Medway and the North Kent districts of Dartford, Gravesham and Swale
*** Artswork covers the South East except for the unitary authority of Medway and the North Kent districts of Dartford, Gravesham and Swale
Arts Award outside of the UK
Arts Award is currently only available in the UK including Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Arts Award is managed in association with Arts Council England and under our current agreement we cannot deliver the awards beyond these territories.
Organisations and individuals working with young people based in the UK are welcome to train as Arts Award advisers and register their centre. At the present time we are unable to offer the awards to children and young people who are based outside of the UK or wish to access the awards through an international project run through a partnership with a UK based Arts Award centre.
We are always pleased to hear about organisations or individuals who might be interested in delivering Arts Award therefore if you are based outside of the UK and would like to share your details with us, we will be in contact with you should our position change.
