Arts Award at Durham University: Library and Collections

Arts Award supports children and young people aged 5-25 who want to deepen their engagement with the arts, build creative and leadership skills and achieve a unique arts qualification.

Our Learning and Engagement Team are trained to access, facilitate and support Arts Award levels DISCOVER, EXPLORE, BRONZE and SILVER. We can help you with part of your Arts Award, applying for joint funding for assessment, or by delivering Arts Award to your young people as part of a funded project.
