Arts Award Welcome
The Belgrade Theatre is delighted to announce its new Arts Award Welcome status.
Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification that supports young people from 11 to 25 to develop as artists and arts leaders.
Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England and is offered at three levels – bronze, silver and gold. At all levels young people have the opportunity to directly engage with the world of arts and to develop their own artistic, leadership and communication skills.
