CanonCanon Young people Arts Award : Arts Council England, North East next month launches a unique Arts Award for young people. A national scheme run through an exciting partnership with awarding body, Trinity Guildhall, and digital imaging specialist Canon (UK) Ltd, the Arts Award is the first accredited youth arts scheme to recognise young people’s development through the arts. Young people are encouraged to develop their favourite arts activity, get involved in the arts in their community, share their skills and run projects with others. Doing an Arts Award builds young people’s skills in the arts and in leadership, as well as building self-confidence. The Arts Award can be run wherever young people take part in the arts.

The award is aimed at those in their teens and early twenties, from all backgrounds and with diverse cultural interests - whether they’re into opera, performance arts, painting or hip hop. The award is accredited by Trinity Guildhall and can be taken at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, which provide national qualifications at Levels 1, 2 and 3. Canon is providing financial support, equipment and assistance to raise the profile of the awards. Young people are supported by an Arts Award adviser, who may be an arts worker, teacher or youth worker. Advisers must undergo training in running and assessing the award before they can work with young people. Theatre Cap-a-pie has been chosen to be the agency for the Arts Award in the North East, as the company has vast experience in working with young people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Young people Arts Award - Theatre Cap-a-pie
Theatre Cap-a-pie successfully ran a pilot of the award with Creative Partnerships Durham Sunderland. The pilot involved working with 8 young people to achieve a Silver award. Speakers at the regional launch include, Gordon Poad, Artistic Director, Theatre Cap-a-pie, Arts Award adviser Claire Webster, Angelic Scream Kompany, Shirley Campbell, Head of Development, Arts Council England, North East and Nigel Wilson, Head of Canon Business Centre, North East. The speakers will provide their unique perspectives on the award’s innovative qualities. The event will also feature performances from young people about to take the Arts Award.

Mark Robinson about Arts Award
Mark Robinson, Executive Director, Arts Council England, North East said, ‘The most surprising thing about the young people’s Arts Award is that it's not been done before now! We know young people value the arts and are often shaped by their enjoyment of music, film, drama, media arts, dance and beyond. Sometimes this becomes a career, sometimes a lifelong passion. These awards will give young people real qualifications, but more importantly build their confidence, communication skills and team working. I wish the young people's Arts Award had existed when I was younger!’

Gordon Poad about achievements in arts
Gordon Poad, Artistic Director of Theatre Cap-a-pie, said, ‘The young people’s Arts Award recognises and celebrates young people’s achievements in the arts. The qualification rewards progression through research, investigation and participation and recognises that young people have taken one or two steps on a journey that might take them a lifetime.’ Dr Roger Bowers, Chief Executive, Trinity Guildhall said, ‘The Arts Award will raise the profile of a range of arts activities amongst young people. The scheme is unique in offering a path to a recognised qualification, achieved through endless creative possibilities.’

Young people Arts Award - Nigel Wilson about teamwork
Nigel Wilson, Head of Canon Business Centre North East said ‘'We are delighted to be actively involved in the Arts Awards programme in the North East. The Arts Award encourages creative planning, researching, presenting, leading others and working as a team - fundamental skills in today’s workplace. Canon’s support of the Arts Award underlines our commitment to the arts and inspiring creativity through world-class technology.’
