Arts Award

Scroll for more

Arts Award is a set of nationally recognised qualifications for young people aged up to 25, to help them grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through involvement in an art form of their choice, such as animation, music, dance, drama, singing painting, sculpture, film-making, photography ... or something else!

Because the award uses dyslexia friendly formats and many dyslexic people excel in creative activity, Dyslexia Scotland offers Arts Award Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver as part of the Career Development Service. 

At our upcoming Young People’s day, participants will have the chance to achieve an Arts Award Discover for

  • taking part in arts activities we provide

  • learning about the guest artists and their work

  • sharing their arts discoveries

This has been made possible with support from the Scottish Government.
