London Arts Award Development Conference (Mar 2013)

A conference for Arts Award advisers to find out about what is happening across the region and develop their practice and delivery of Arts Award.

A New Direction hosted the London Arts Award Development Conference which brought together advisers across the region to find out more about Arts Award and support their delivery with practical advice and innovative thinking.

The conference focused on the bigger picture that surrounds Arts Award – challenging perceptions and examining new ways of working that support the delivery of Arts Award.

The day was planned to help those new to Arts Award find out useful ways to practically deliver the Award – and provide intensive support to help advisers plan and implement delivery in a wide variety of settings. More experienced advisers benefited from finding out about current practice, and debating the development of the award within the region.

Workshops and themes included:

  • Arts Award in Special Schools
  • EBacc and Arts Award
  • Delivering Arts Award with Large Groups
  • De-westernising Arts Award
  • New models of funding for artists
  • Partnership working and Arts Award
