Exeter Culture & Art Centres launch Arts Award this summer

20 July 2017

This summer, for the first time, arts and cultural venues across Exeter are working together to launch a collective range of inspiring arts activities to help families and children achieve an Arts Award qualification.

From the end of July to early September, RAMM, Exeter Phoenix, Exeter Northcott Theatre, Exeter Library and Paddleboat Theatre are working with many other companies and artists to provide an varied range of workshops, courses and performances. The events are listed in a handy arts programme, so that families can easily see what’s on offer across the city and plan their activities.

Arts Award

Arts Award is a national qualification provided by schools and community settings across the UK.  It is offered across 5 levels for children and young people aged up to 25 years and encourages children to take part in different creative activities at home, school or in the community. The award also asks children to research artists and their work and share their achievements with others. The Exeter summer programme is especially relevant to those working towards their Discover, Explore and Bronze Arts Award levels. Arts Award is a fun way to find out about arts and culture and learn new skills, whilst gaining a nationally recognised certificate.

The city-wide initiative is led by the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery.

Councillor Rachel Sutton, Portfolio Holder for City Development, said: “This is a fantastic initiative for Exeter. We’re delighted that the city’s arts organisations are working together to provide this exciting offer for young people from Exeter and further afield. The Arts Award provides a way for young people to engage with arts and culture, to learn something new and to have fun doing it. The qualification gives them something to be proud of, helps boost confidence and will help them to succeed in other areas of their education.”

Whether children are already working towards an Arts Award and looking for new experiences to add to their portfolio, or hoping to use this opportunity to start an Arts Award, the city-wide programme will help.

Arts activities this summer

There is no shortage of activities this year, with the return of the Unpacked Theatre Festival, Shakespeare in the park, Summer Reading Challenge activities at the library and the amazing Sea Life exhibition running at RAMM. Families and children can attend as many events as they are able to, enjoy a range of diverse creative activities and meet artists who will inspire the next generation.
