Added: Further Arts Award Festival Investments
Date Created: 19th Jul 2016
Following last month’s announcement of four Artswork Arts Award Festival Investments, we are pleased to announce the addition of a further four organisations we are supporting until the end of September 2017.
The investment is supporting Festivals, Carnivals and Melas in the South East to deliver and embed Arts Award in their work across the region.
As well as those previously listed, we are supporting the following organisations:
“bOing! has teamed up with Artswork to offer 150 children the chance to Discover bOing! and gain an Arts Award Discover qualification – the most fun you can have to get a certificate!”
Artswork will be supporting Gulbenkian at bOing! while they run Arts Award activities as part of their festival programme, across two days in August (Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th). To find out more, see http://boingfestival.com/whats-on/workshops/discover-boing/ or contact [email protected]
“Oska Bright is the original international festival of short films made by people with learning disabilities. It is produced, managed and presented by a learning disabled team.”
We will be supporting Carousel to run Arts Award Discover for young people with learning disabilities, as part of their upcoming 2017 Oska Bright Film Festival in Brighton. Find out more about the project here or contact [email protected] for more information.
“The concept is simple: one book, by one author is selected for the children of Brighton & Hove (and beyond!) to read, explore, discuss and creatively engage with.”
The Young City Reads project aims to “foster the joy of reading for pleasure” while inspiring “young reader’s explore a story’s themes further through conversation and linked activity”. This year, Artswork are supporting the project as it runs Arts Award Discover alongside for children taking part in the activities.

“The aim of Southampton’s Youth Film Festival is to celebrate and promote the culture of film, making it accessible to a younger audience. It seeks to create and appreciation of film and spark a passion for filmmaking by creating opportunities to develop and exhibit young talent.”
Artswork will be supporting John Hansard Gallery as they work with City Eye during Southampton Film Week 2016, where they will be integrating the offer of Arts Award into their Youth Film Festival programming. John Hansard Gallery have previously featured different levels of Arts Award qualifications in their work with “socially excluded young people, schools and individuals”.
