How Arts Award can work for you?Whether you're an arts organisation, gallery, museum, theatre, library, independent practitioner or community arts project, Arts Award can help you attract young people and support them to develop both creative and leadership skills.
Arts and cultural organisations can fit Arts Award's flexible framework around existing learning programmes, accredit the work of interns or volunteers, or run open access Arts Award workshops. Young people can focus on any art form, including ‘behind the scenes’ and technical activities. Creative documentation can be part of the programme, such as video diaries, video documentaries and audio interviews.
Arts organisations often partner with schools or youth clubs to share delivery of Arts Award. This offers young people a professional arts stimulus, builds audiences and generates exciting evidence for their Arts Award portfolios.
Applications for grant or trust funding may be strengthened if young people are gaining a qualification, helping you cover the costs of training and moderation. Arts Award provides a framework for projects and offers young people a qualification. Accreditation often attracts participants and may draw in additional funding.
