Arts Award

Arts Award Supporter logo

Arts Award offers a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form.

We are an Arts Award Supporter and can help young people and their advisers with their Arts Award delivery of Discover Part B, Explore Part B, Bronze Parts B and C, Silver Unit 1 Part C and Gold Unit 1 Part C.

A lot of our theatre and dance productions tour nationally and internationally to arts venues and community spaces. Our work and festivals have been suitable for a variety of ages and so we can usually cater to supporting children and young people between 9 and 25.

There is no additional cost to our Arts Award Supporter offer other than the cost of the activity you are interested in, eg. the show or the training opportunity.

If you’re interested in linking Arts Award to one of our productions, or for more information, please contact Andrea Pieri Gonzalez.

Our Offer to Teachers and Schools
