Find out how Arts Award contributes to achieving Artsmark status

Art and culture play an important role as part of a broad and balanced curriculum, helping children and young people to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them as well as character and talent.

The new Artsmark, designed with and for schools, is a great resource to recognise and support the development of quality arts and cultural provision in schools, helping young people to unlock their potential regardless of their background.

Nicky Morgan
Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities

A quality cultural education can have a huge impact on young people, from inspiring future careers to helping develop their creativity in other subjects.

The new Artsmark award, which has been designed with and for schools, is a great way to celebrate the importance of teaching arts and culture so that children from all backgrounds can reap the benefits.

Ed Vaizey
Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy

Cultural education gives children and young people the opportunity to develop their creativity, both individually and collectively, and that's why our goal is for every child and young person to have the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts.
