Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it's creative, valuable and accessible. It can be achieved at five levels, four accredited qualifications and an introductory award.
As an Arts Award Supporter you offer experiences to young people which can contribute towards their Arts Award, which they may be doing at their school, youth group or arts organisation.
By being a Supporter you are encouraging young people to join your group and your future audience.

A Making Music Supporter offer could look like this:
Becoming an active member of [NAME] can contribute towards taking part in the arts at Bronze level, completing an arts challenge at Silver and developing arts practice at Gold.
All of [NAME] performances can be used to review arts events at Bronze, Silver and Gold.
NAME often holds events, workshops and performances that could be run by a member to contribute to their Silver and Gold arts/leadership project. We can help with suggestions around this.
Feel free to use these suggestions and change them as you wish!
