Arts Award

Arts Award is a national scheme for young people who want to deepen their engagement with the arts, build creative and leadership skills, and achieve a national qualification. In 2016/17 Carousel became an Arts Award Good Practice Centre meaning that we provide a space for people to develop as artists, utilise their skills and gain confidence in their artform.

What we offer

Carousel’s expertise is within film-making, music, radio, theatre and VR. We can deliver individual Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold awards with a range of advisors with specific skills. In 2017 – we trained 4 artists to be Discover and Explore advisors.

We can also deliver workshops to schools/organisations in Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver, Gold. We can adapt all workshops and arts award materials to make it accessible to people with learning disabilities.
