Arts Award Data Analysis

We have put together top priorities and recommendations based on a full analysis of Arts Award in London.

Arts Award is a flexible framework which offers young people the chance to get involved in arts and cultural activities, develop their social and emotional capabilities, grow as artists and arts leaders and gain a qualification. According to previous research, 58% of young people in London are interested in Arts Award, 28% of young people are aware of Arts Award and less than 1% have achieved an Award.

A New Direction seeks to ensure that Arts Award is consistently available to young people across London and that the organisations that work with them have clear plans for how their work can enable young people to progress and achieve through the arts. In order for this to happen, Arts Award needs to be accessible throughout London, with different sectors, centres and supporters working together strategically to maximise opportunities for all children and young people.
