Arts Award Success

19 Sep 2012

This week we were thrilled to learn that fifteen of our participants achieved the Arts Council Bronze Arts Award qualification.  The group of 12 to 17 year olds took part in a week-long intensive project over the summer at M6 Studio.

As part of the award they had to review a performance, write about their arts hero and take part in and lead drama activities.  For many of the young people this was their first taste of drama and performance and we’re very pleased that some of them have gone on to join the youth theatre.

ACT NOW! Programme Manager Caroline Kennedy said:

“We’re very proud of the young people involved and they’ve definitely been inspired by the programme.  They were required to produce portfolios to present their work and the moderator commented that they were some of the best he’s ever seen.”
