Arts Award Supporter

Norfolk & Norwich Festival supports young people in achieving their Arts Award and in schools achieving their Artsmark. We support the Arts Award by offering activities each year which young people can like to their Arts Award.

Since we began delivering Arts Award in 2014 a fantastic 1747 children and young people have achieved their Arts Award through school workshops, activities at our annual Garden Party and alongside internships and placements within our organisation.

‘[I liked] trying a different thing and learning to be creative.’ Primary school pupil

‘The Arts Award gave me a focused and structured way to give my ideas a go without the fear of failure. My biggest accomplishment is my work on developing the way I practice my art form. I have always wanted to create work in response to a research project. I had also been keen to link my work in film with poetry. I finally did all of this as part of my Arts Award and I was so happy with the outcome. It feels like a big accomplishment to finally start and finish a project I had wanted to do for a long time… I now hope to build on the research I conducted as part of my Arts Award to look further into the issues that affect accessibility to the arts and wider world contexts.’ Becky Demmen, Gold Arts Award – click here to read the full article

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
