We’re really looking forward to this week of Arts Award activities (6–10 August), we’ve had a lot of interest and are aiming for it to be a vibrant and dynamic experience for the young people involved, with excellent value for money.
It’s a first for us to offer this Award in a week – both Spacex and Exeter Phoenix have been running Arts Award for a few years now but thought it’d be a good idea to offer this focussed time within a holiday club format to achieve the award and really get it under your belt. Going back to school in September with a certificate under your belt should be a real springboard into the new school year. We’ll be taking the young people around a range of venues around town – the museum, other galleries, theatres – maybe even ECFC! Both Spacex and Exeter Phoenix have good links with a variety of organisations and artists and other creative practitioners and it’ll be great to share these with the young people. Arts Award is a brilliant way for young people to gain new skills and meet with like minds, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that this pilot will become a regular part of what we offer.
