Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents.
Arts Award is a national qualification, accredited by Trinity College London and aims to inspire young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it’s creative, valuable and accessible. Glyndebourne is dedicated to introducing young people to the arts through opera and is a Trinity Champion Centre for 2021-22.
Over the years, Glyndebourne has supported hundreds of participants to achieve their Arts Award through various projects, including; Primary School Backstage Tours, Glyndebourne Youth Opera and Performances for Schools. Through the national lockdown in 2020, Glyndebourne supported young people to complete an Arts Award at Home, providing the opportunity to watch opera digitally with supporting online worksheets and guidance from our dedicated Arts Award advisors. To find out more about how we guided participants through their Arts Award at Home, read our blog post.
In 2022 we supported 24 young people to complete their Arts Award as part of their participation in the Christmas Concerts at Glyndebourne, as well as 50 pupils in schools in Canterbury and Liverpool as part of our Tour. Up to 200 students who visited Glyndebourne under our Performance for Schools scheme last Autumn will achieve their Discover Arts Award certificate.
