Spacex has been an Arts Award centre since 2007. Arts Award offers a range of unique qualifications that support children and young people to grow as artists and arts leaders, and inspires them to connect with the wider art world. There are no entry requirements, apart from having an interest in exploring new creative experiences, and undertaking challenges in an art form, from fashion to film making, pottery to poetry.
In our latest Arts Award projects, children from Ladysmith Junior School, Exeter, and the Devon Youth Inclusion Support Programme have achieved Arts Award Explore, and Arts Award Discover. Children visited exhibitions at Spacex, took part in artist led activities, recorded what inspired them, and created their own artworks which were then exhibited in the gallery.
This autumn we are offering all children aged five and over the chance to find out about Arts Award and achieve their first certificate. To find out more, you are invited to come along to ‘Introducing Arts Award’ on Saturday 13 September.
