Young people in Rotherham are invited to take part in a free three-day programme of creative workshops this month, which will culminate in a nationally recognised Arts Award for each of the attendees.
From Tuesday 19th to Thursday 21st April, a group of 12- to 15-year-olds from Rotherham will learn from professional artists and take part in exciting and accessible arts activities during the workshops at Rotherham Civic Theatre and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. At the end, the attendees will walk away with a Bronze Arts Award, a nationally recognised Level 1 qualification that looks great on CVs and college applications.
The initiative is part of Rotherham’s Children’s Capital of Culture pilot programme of activity, which aims to give more young people in the borough access to events, skills, qualifications and jobs in the creative and cultural industries.
Sarah Christie, Programme Manager for Children’s Capital of Culture 2025, explains: “As part of our journey to become Children’s Capital of Culture in 2025, we’re aiming for 200 young people across Rotherham to achieve a Bronze Arts Award this year, developing their leadership skills, building their confidence, and unleashing their creativity, which we need more than ever.
“This is an opportunity for young people in Rotherham to experience culture for themselves, explore different art forms, and then share what they’ve learned with others. We’re really looking forward to it.”
