The application portal will remain open for this Round until 25 July 2014, which means you can submit an application at any time until this date.

The following settings can apply for Artsmark:

  • Primary and secondary schools (including independent schools)
  • Special schools and PRUs
  • Youth justice settings
  • Further education colleges.

If you were awarded Artsmark in Round 10 (2009/10 academic year) and have not since successfully reapplied, you must reapply by the end of March 2014 in order to maintain your status.

Artsmark is a prestigious award which is a sign of commitment to high quality arts and cultural education. Achieving Artsmark is a great accolade for your organisation and as Arts Council England’s flagship programme which enables you to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate, it’s the way of gaining national recognition for your arts and cultural offer.
