Enriching lives, connecting communities

Arts Award & Artsmark

The New Carnival Company is a registered Arts Award Centre and has 13 trained assessors working with Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver level awards.  We aim, wherever possible, to embed Arts Award delivery and accreditation into all our projects, such as the Mardi Gras, and we support schools and groups in their own in-house delivery as assessors and advisors.  We can offer young people working towards their Arts Award the chance to engage with our artists, our making space, our workshops and events. Arts Award is a personal learning programme which develops and assesses both arts-related and transferable skills, such as creativity, communication, planning and teamwork: young people aged up to 25 can achieve Arts Awards.

We work closely with Artswork, our Bridge, in supporting schools in achieving Artsmark.  Artsmark is the nationally recognised mark of excellence for schools delivering quality arts and cultural provision and is awarded by Arts Council England. For those schools who have registered with Artsmark and are undertaking their Artsmark journey, we offer a special 15% discount on our Creative Learning Offer for teachers and for children/young people.

We play a leading strategic role in our local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP), which is working together to offer a consistent and high quality art and cultural education as set out in the Cultural Education Challenge. We believe that all children and young people should be able to experience great art and culture. Cultural education fosters creativity and innovation, unlocking vital skills that drive the creative industries.
