Coventry Music & Arts Award 'Discover at Home'

Arts Award Discover

Discover at Home is a special version of Arts Award Discover, the first level of Arts Award.

This event has now finished but visit the arts award website or our arts award pages for other events and opportunities to get involved with.

We are pleased to announce the launch of Arts Award Discover at Home, with the support of Arts Award and Arts Connect West Midlands. Arts Award is a set of awards for children and young people aged 25 and under, that gets them involved in and excited about arts and culture and also celebrates their creative achievements. Arts Award aims to improve confidence and communication skills including literacy, as well as developing arts skills. Arts Award Discover is a foundation to introduce children and young people to the world of the arts and culture and a springboard to other levels of Arts Award, which are qualifications regulated by Ofqual.

Discover at Home enables children to be rewarded for the creative activities they enjoy. It supports children to connect with arts activities and explore new ones, online or at home, until it’s possible to visit or engage with them live again. Coventry Music is supporting 20 children and young people through the award, as part of our commitment to continue creative learning throughout the city.

Arts Award Discover can also be completed in more normal times, in partnership with Coventry Music's Arts Award Centre. With easy to follow guidance and lots of suggestions for arts, craft and creative activities, Discover at Home is for parents & carers who may not be arts specialists themselves and are looking for something different to keep children engaged and entertained. They even gain a certificate at the end of the course!
