Get creative...and achieve a nationally recognised qualification

Whatever art form you’re interested in, whatever your ability, Arts Award fits you.

You can do an Arts Award in any area of the arts from fashion to poetry, rapping to dancing, sculpture to film. You can be an artists or performer, or develop your skills in essential roles like marketing or stage management.  

Head over to our youth website Arts Award Voice to find out what other young people are up to and get ideas for doing your own award.
