The Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents in a creative, valuable and accessible way. There are five levels, four qualifications and an introduction award which are Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The awards are for children and young people up to the age of 25.
The Arts Award missions is to ‘support young people who want to deepen their engagement with the arts, build creative and leadership skills, and to achieve a national qualification.’
The Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with the Arts Council England which lunched in 2005. Art centres now include colleges and schools, community projects, libraries, galleries, local authorities, theatres, youth clubs and youth justice settings.
Norfolk Wildlife Trust and the Arts Award
In 2016, Norfolk Wildlife Trust became accredited as an Arts Centre. Key education staff received training to become Arts Advisors to deliver Discover and Explore tailored sessions. As part of our 90th
anniversary celebrations, we’ve designed a packaged session which focuses on our ‘9 for 90’ species to raise awareness of key Norfolk species and their habitats. Please visit our 9 for 90 Outreach
page for further details.
The high quality art exhibitions at Simon Aspinall Wildlife Education Centre
(NWT Cley Marshes) have enabled us to expand our Arts Award session by basing Discover sessions around current exhibitions.
