Arts Award

In autumn 2012, Youth Focus: North East became an Arts Award Centre, offering young people the chance to develop their own creative projects and gain accredited qualifications.

We initially supported five young people, creating bespoke projects that extended young people’s creative practice and increased their leadership and project management skills. The projects included elements of graphic design, fine art, graffiti, events management, circus, spoken word and theatre.

Since autumn 2013, we have been working with a group of young people from a local school, helping them to develop a project around go-karting.
