Calling young people aged 11-25! Get involved with Góbéfest and gain an Arts Award qualification!

Are you coming to Góbéfest?  Are you passionate about arts & culture?   Do you want to gain an Arts Award Qualification?  Beat Bazaar Projects is offering a Bronze Arts award qualification for young people,  who would like to take part in the arts activities offered at Góbéfest.

What is an Arts Award? 


Arts Award is…

…a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.

Offered at five different levels, young people get to:

  • discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form
  • develop their creativity and leadership skills
  • learn new skills and share them with others
  • get to work with or experience working with creative arts professionals
  • gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment

To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser, acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.  The Arts Award compliments young people’s formal education and provides an additional qualification.

Bronze Arts Award: Level 1 Award in the Arts – Qualification number: 501/0081/6

Bronze Arts Award is a Level 1 qualification on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and is open to young people aged 11 to 25. To achieve a Bronze Arts Award, young people collect evidence in an individual arts log or portfolio of their experiences of:

  • actively participating in any art form
  • at least one arts event as an audience member
  • researching the work of an artist/craftsperson that inspires them
  • passing on an arts skill

Beat Bazaar Projects will provide additional workshops, activities and  language support for young people aged 11-25,  who would like to gain an Arts Award Qualification to compliment their formal education.

If you are interested in getting involved get in touch with us and we will send you more information.
