Arts Mark and Arts Awards

Arts Award - What is it?

Open to anyone up to 25 years old, Arts Award embraces all interests and backgrounds. Through working towards an award young people learn to work independently, helping them to prepare for further education and employment.

Arts Award motivates and celebrates young people’s artistic achievements. Young people can achieve an award through any arts, media or cultural activity, developing knowledge and understanding their chosen art forms. Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England and the national bridge network.


Do you know that The Dance Network Association are on the national register as a partner for the Arts Council England Artsmark programme. What does this mean I hear you ask? We can support you to deliver dance, extend your dance offer or become a leader of dance across greater Essex. Come and have a coffee and a chat with us about your development plans - we always have great biscuits for such an occasion OR a healthy alternative if you prefer. We look forward to dancing with you.


Get in contact if you would like to find out more on how we might help you achieve your Arts Mark Status. 







Arts Mark - What is it?

Artsmark gives every child the opportunity to create, compose, and perform, gain knowledge and understanding, and to visit experience and participate in extraordinary work. Awarded by Arts Council England, designed by schools, the new Artsmark award will help schools to deliver a high quality arts and cultural education and provides an excellent way to demonstrate this. Across the country Artsmark is rewarding more and more schools for championing arts and culture. Any school, college or youth justice setting can apply. Artsmark schools gain access to exceptional resources as well as networks of the country’s most treasured cultural organisations, helping them develop and strengthen their arts provision.


As an organisation we are we follow the 7 quality principles of the Arts Mark within all our work which means you are able to as a school come to us to ensure you tick one of these off your list.  Such as attending a professional development course for dance, which would hit your CPD mark.
