About Arts Award
Arts Award supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. We want to inspire children and young people aged up to 25 to enjoy the arts and develop their skills.
We offer young people recognition through an introductory award, Arts Award Discover, and four national qualifications: Arts Award Explore and Bronze, Silver and Gold Arts Award.

Young people working towards Arts Award explore the work of artists and the world of the arts. Culture Street offers a fantastic online resource to support their research and we want to show you how to make the most of it.

Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England working with 10 regional Bridge organisations.

Culture Street is developed by the award winning team that brought you ArtisanCam and Film Street. As Culture Street, we've drawn together our family of creative websites in one place. Funded by Arts Council England, we're very excited to partner Arts Award to support young people in developing their creative and leadership talents and gaining accreditation.
