Birmingham City Council

Arts Awards

The Arts Award for young people is offered at three levels, from bronze to gold, as part of the national qualifications framework. It recognises the achievments of young people engaged with the arts and supports them to develop and broaden their cultural participation and leadership skills.

Birmingham City Council has worked closely with the Arts Award West Midlands regional agency to promote and support this important qualification, in line with the City’s Creative Future strategy.

As an extension of this support in 2011 saw the launch of the Creative Credit Card which offers a wide range of exclusive opportunities and benefits to those who have achieved or are working towards an Arts Award at either bronze, silver or gold level.
