Arts Award at Home

Glyndebourne is more committed than ever to helping young people engage with opera and the arts.

I found it very interesting and it made you think a lot more about the hidden Glyndebourne. All the work and input that is needed, every detail and dream that comes to life on the stage.’ Hermione, Arts Award at Home Participant
Glyndebourne is more committed than ever to helping young people engage with opera and the arts, but the times in which we live mean we have to find new ways to create, learn and keep in contact with each other.

We know how hard it can be to make sense of what we are all living through, as well as finding a way to give shape and purpose to so much time isolated from friends and family. Our need for cultural stimulation is as great if not greater in the hard times: the arts have always been humanity’s way of making sense of it all. That is why we launched Arts Award at Home.

Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it’s creative, valuable and accessible and is a national qualification, accredited by Trinity College London. There is so much you can do at home, on your own or with others in your household, and an Arts Award can be achieved completely remotely.

You can either take part on your own using these resources, or ask your school to deliver Arts Award as part of the curriculum by sharing the information about Arts Award at School with your teacher.

You can expect from us:

  • Support from an Arts Award advisor – group video calls throughout the process to help you stay on track and keep inspired.
  • Access to a wealth of online resources based on Glyndebourne productions and artists
  • Worksheets and prompts to help you get started

We are able to offer Discover, Explore or Bronze depending on how much time you want to commit to the scheme. Our scheme of work breaks down what is involved in each level and will help you decide which level you wish to complete.

If you are interested in completing an Arts Award at Home with Glyndebourne, please fill out the Expression of Interest below and a member of the Learning & Engagement team will be in touch soon. We hope to be able to offer everyone a place straight away, but if demand is very high we will look to support a second cohort later in the year.

All details about Arts Award from Home can be found in the FAQ below, including a breakdown of administration costs associated with each level.

To support you in completing your Arts Award at Home we have created a series of worksheets which link to Glyndebourne productions. These offer stimulating and creative activities in response to themes from our productions and can be used by anyone, not just those completing the Arts Award at Home. You can also support your portfolio with any other arts activities you may be involved in – from dance, to painting, writing and beyond – feel free to explore the wider world of culture as well as the rich content available at Glyndebourne.

To find out more about how our first cohort tackled Arts Award remotely, read our blog post here.

If you have any further questions or would like to discuss this with a member of the team, please email takepart@glyndebourne.com. We are working remotely but can call you if you leave a telephone number or answer queries by email.

Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England, working with ten regional Bridge organisations.
