Here at Door 84, we have 4 Arts Award Advisors who can support young people through their Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver Awards.
‘The Arts Award is a great opportunity to support young people who want to deepen their engagement with the arts, build creative and leadership skills, and to achieve a national qualification. Through Arts Award young people can explore any art forms including performing arts, visual arts, literature, media and multimedia. The award builds confidence, helps young people to enjoy cultural activities, and prepares them for further education or employment.
