Arts Award in Museum Settings

Arts Award supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders and young people can progress through the levels.

Here are three examples of how Museums are delivering Arts Award in their venues. Arts Award Discover at Peterborough Museum, Arts Award Explore at Lancashire Infantry Museum and the Museum of Lancashire and Bronze Arts Award at the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich.
