Are you interested in the arts? Would you like to get an award for it?

Arts Award supports young people up to the age of 25 to discover more about the arts and grow as artists and leaders, by inspiring them to connect with and take part in artform challenges.

Any of Artslink's events or activities can be used as part of an Arts Award, and any arts activities you do at home or school can be used too! During Covid lockdowns it's possible to use online activities, resources and info to work on your Arts Award.

There are different levels of Arts Award:
