We promote Arts Award as part of our role as a Bridge Organisation for Arts Council England – helping children and young people to raise their aspirations, realise their potential and have their creative achievements recognised.
We have created a series of short films to help any school get started with Arts Award, explaining the process from start to finish. Hopefully, it will answer your questions, queries or worries and give you real examples of how education settings across the East Midlands are delivering outstanding arts learning through Arts Award.
Schools talk about how they funded, gained support and budgeted for Arts Award projects and programmes. Here are some links that you may find useful: find out more about costs here; Trinity provides small grants through their Access Fund; and, you can find out about The Mighty Creatives opportunities here.
