Arts Award Explore
Congratulations Mel and Sonia
Big congratulations to Sonia Sabri and Mel Lewis who have now become trained Arts Award Explore Advisors! Our future plans are to develop this fantastic programme within schools and organisations. We are starting our new journey with Arts Award in a local primary school in Birmingham, Niskam Primary, so do keep your eyes peeled for further information about this project.
Arts Award Explore is an entry level 3 qualification designed for ages 7 and above but is open to anyone aged up to 25. The Arts Award Explore programme allows participants to take part in a range of art activities helping to develop their own personal creativity and to record the progress of this in a fun and creative way. While working towards their qualification participants will also experience the work of other artists and art organisations and have the opportunity to share their achievements with others.
We feel Arts Award is a wonderful opportunity to spread the arts practise to our future generation thus empowering the community to make sense of their lives and the world around them, using the tools of imagination to leap forward and present a voice for the people, so everyone involved can stand a head taller than themselves in every day life. Art is a powerful tool that changes lives for the better!
