The Arts Award is a national qualification which supports young people in their development as artists and arts leaders. Doing an Arts Award will help young people to develop their creative skills and ability to communicate well and lead projects. The Arts Award is useful for getting further education opportunities in the arts and in other fields.
You can achieve the Arts Award if you are aged 11-25 and take part in the arts at your school or youth project, or with an arts organisation or youth arts scheme. If you are a young person you can take the Arts Award by getting involved with ADeC youth projects. www.artsaward.org.uk

The YPL Music Rooms is an exciting Music Project based at the YPL Centre in Littleport. Phil Malkin, Manager for Young People Littleport, contacted Nathan Jones of ADeC about converting the disused upstairs space in their community centre, into a multi-purpose music facility for people of all ages to use. After a successful application to Youth Music, funding was awarded to the project, which allowed work to begin. After months of building work, and with a lot of help from volunteers & local musicians, the Music Rooms opened to the public in September 2011. We are now a year into the project, which has been a huge success so far!

Thanks to generous funding from the co-operative membership community fund, young people have the chance to be involved in an exciting new project based in Jubilee Gardens on Ely’s riverside.
Over the past ten years, the award winning gardens have matured into a wonderful space where you can relax, enjoy the many plants, admire artworks, listen to live music or indulge in a picnic. This is in no small part due to the hard work and commitment of the Friends of Jubilee Gardens team who have now secured this funding to allow young people to make a positive contribution to the gardens in 2012.
The project, coordinated by ADeC (Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire), is called ‘yourspace’; a title intended to highlight the fact that young people will be given a unique opportunity to take part of the gardens and make it theirs for an event or display.
