Magna Vitae, a Trust for Leisure and Culture is proud to be an Arts Award Supporter. Organisations bearing the Arts Award Supporter badge offer activities, events, expertise or resources which help people working towards the award.

Arts Award is a range of qualifications that support people aged upto 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders. It inspires them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.

Offered at five different levels, young people are given the opportunity to:

  • Discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form.
  • Develop their creativity and leadership skills.
  • Learn new skills and share them with others.
  • Get to work with or experience working with creative arts professionals.
  • Gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment.

To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others.  Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser who acts as an assessor, facilitator and mentor.

Magna Vitae runs the Embassy Theatre in Skegness. We also organise a number of popular festivals and events including SO Festival, Wolds Words Festival, Rural & Community Touring Scheme, Holiday Activities and much more. Getting involved in one, or a number of these, can help you to achieve your Arts Award.
