What is Arts Award Voice?
Voice is an online magazine for young people who love the arts.
It’s aimed at young people aged 12+ doing their Bronze, Silver and Gold Arts Award and is run by a young editorial team who offer inspiration and insight into the arts world. There are interviews with arts professionals, how-to guides, reviews, events, competitions and more.
