Arts Award

Helping young people to be inspired by the arts!

The Museum, in partnership with Fishbourne Roman Palace, Chichester Cathedral, Chichester Festival Theatre, Pallant House Gallery and The Novium, has been working to support and develop an exciting new Arts Award.

The Arts Award is a unique, nationally recognised qualification that supports young people exploring the fields of art, culture and heritage. There are five different levels of Arts Award, ranging from an introductory ‘Discover’ level through to an advanced ‘Gold’ level, which means that those considering future work in the sector are able to research, develop arts practice and gain valuable experience.

The Museum is keen to support schools or colleges wishing to undertake an Arts Award; its youth group is taking part in the Arts Award and, from 16-19 March (during Shakespeare Week) participants will undertake an Arts Award as part of the event, which is run in partnership with Chichester Festival Theatre.

The development hubs are taking place across the country for a 12-month duration and are established with support from Artswork, the South East Bridge organisation for Arts Council England. If you’d like to find out more, please email the Museum’s Schools Services team.
