Congratulations to the recent Artsmark Achievers

Schools and arts award

Many of the schools taking part in the Nautical Thread project worked with DAD in March 2013 on a series of workshops aimed at supporting them with their Artsmark ambitions. See video by Miles Umney.

Round 13 Artsmark Achievers include St Mary’s Church of England Primary School
and Green Park Community Primary School. Castle Community College is an Artsmark Gold Achiever. Congratulations! Artsmark Round 14 is now open and we hope many of the schools involved will soon be celebrating recognised success in arts and culture.

DAD has also recently registered as an Arts Award supporter, which means that we can support Arts Award applicants by helping them access artists and provide opportunities to attend events, for example. Through Nautical Threads, we will be supporting Arts Award adviser training for the teachers involved.
