Arts Award

What is it?

Open to anyone up to 25 years old, Arts Award embraces all interests and backgrounds. Through working towards an award young people learn to work independently, helping them to prepare for further education and employment.

Arts Award motivates and celebrates young people’s artistic achievements. Young people can achieve an award through any arts, media or cultural activity, developing knowledge and understanding their chosen art forms.

Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England and the national bridge network.

What we do 

Royal Opera House Bridge is a training agency for Discover and Explore, and Bronze and Silver levels.

We also support trained advisers at any stage of their delivery through surgeries, one-to-one visits and our annual advisers conference.
