Arts Award

Open to anyone aged 7 to 25, 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 working with 10 regional bridge organisations. Royal Opera House Bridge is part of this network, funded by Arts Council England.
