Arts Award Training at Yorkshire Artspace

As part of our involvement in the new Children & Young People Providers Network in Sheffield we are hosting 2 FREE Arts Award Training events at Persistence Works in early autumn. Arts Award is a unique qualification, supporting children and young people to develop as artists and arts leaders, assessing art form knowledge and understanding, creativity and communication rather than a specific art form skill level. Anyone up to the age of 25 can gain an Arts Award through any art form, including technical and support roles.  This is only being offered to network members and is yet another incentive to join.   So if you are an artist, maker or cultural practitioner in any artform who works with or is interested in working with children & young people - sign up by follwoing this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/sheffield_network.

Mini Commissions Offer:

This autumn (September to December 2014) there will be some opportunities for Network members to apply for commissions to make MINI PROJECTS in a variety of communities in Sheffield. Some of them will be linked to Arts Awards. Artists and arts organisations in Sheffield who are chosen to work in communities will need to attend the relevant level of training.  If you're interested in knowing more, please email Sophie.Hunter@capeuk.org  indicating that you would like to know more and put the training dates below in into your diaries.
