This Friday evening will see the opening of Mozfest in London, the world’s leading festival for the open internet. Arts Award is excited to be hosting the Digital Arts and Culture Space at the festival from 29-30 October at Ravensbourne and we are busy preparing for up to 3,000 people to visit the venue across the weekend.
Continuing our countdown to MozFest, on day 2 of the MozFest fringe takeover this month, we bring you the Crafts Council who are delivering an exciting UK wide festival which will bring digital making and new technologies to over 3,000 people.
With less than two weeks to go until MozFest opens its doors to the public, we’re continuing the MozFest Fringe takeover week on the blog. A selection of Arts Award centres from across the country share their digital Arts Award plans for activities and events this autumn.
This week we hear from 2015-16 Good Practice Centre Victoria Education Centre, and explore their Arts Award project using the BBC’s Secondary Ten Pieces as a stimulus.
This week on the blog we find out how museums and galleries are using Arts Award with families. The winner of Kids in Museum’s Family Friendly Museum Award will be announced on 10 October and we were delighted to find that seven of the eight English museums deliver Arts Award (and the eighth is planning to!).
Are you an adviser in England working with young people who may struggle to access Arts Award due to their personal circumstances?
If so and you’re looking to pilot, embed or develop Arts Award with these young people then you’re eligible to apply for a grant of between £100 and £1,500 through the Access Fund.
Applications are open now via the Arts Award website and close at 5pm on Friday 21 October.
In our final installment from the MozFest fringe this week, we bring you insights from MakoEducation, who are using digital arts to help young people explore their local communities.
Day 3 of our MozFest fringe week brings you Orleans House Gallery and their inspiring youth-led fusion of heritage and digital gaming.
