Arts Award Local Area Network Meeting - Sutton
Thursday 16 March, 4.30pm - 6pm (tea and coffee from 4pm)
Join Sound Connections for an afternoon of networking, informative updates and practical support for those interested in supporting young people taking Arts Award. This free session is open to Arts Award Advisors, teachers, musicians and other artists working across south west London. If you are a newcomer to Arts Award please come along to find out more and get some advice and support.
Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification for children and young people aged 5 – 25 offering five different levels: Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Encouraging involvement across the arts, Arts Award gives young people the opportunity to explore, enjoy and benefit from their local arts opportunities and creates links to creative organisations and professionals.
During the session Sound Connections will present all the latest information about Arts Award, looking at new and exciting ways of delivering the Arts Award programme. Find out about the different Arts Award qualifications and about Arts Award training and support and learn more about setting up partnerships and networks. Mike Simpson from Inspire Works will also talk about the Arts Award projects he is leading in Sutton.
There will be opportunities for discussion, sharing new ideas and best practice over tea, coffee and snacks.
