Advisers - How to get the best out of Arts Award on Voice

Advisers - How to get the best out of Arts Award on Voice

Join here to access guidance on the Arts Award hubs and help your groups find inspiration.

Tips on how to use Arts Award Voice:

Young people can share their experiences and reviews

Voice is an open platform where young people can share, amongst other things, their Arts Award reviews and opinion pieces. We have an active community, including the Voice team, who comment on each other's work. You can encourage your groups to do the same!
Check out this opinion piece from Joshua Gold about the arts in schools or this piece from George G Magician about technology, social media and magic

Have a look through our Blogs and Reviews for more. 

N.B. If your group would rather not get comments from our wider community they can still post them to Voice and tick the box that says 'Only show on my profile & portfolio', which means it's accessible only from that user's area; allowing advisers and peers to still find the piece and comment.

Get stories of Arts Award achievers

Hearing how others achieved their award can be inspiring for young people, especially at the beginning of their Arts Award journey. Check out our case studies to hear direct from achievers. We also interview those who are further on in their careers and find out what Arts Award led to. We'd love to feature your young people too - send them here.

Research into a particular career or art form

Our range of interviews with organisations and arts practitioners offer the perfect starting point for researching inspiring artists and the creative industries. These can contribute to Arts Award research at all levels.

24/7 access to support in the Bronze, Silver and Gold Hubs

Our Bronze, Silver and Gold Hubs offer step-by-step guides to doing each part of Arts Award with real portfolio examples and handy tools. If a young person isn't sure what to do and they're not due to see their adviser straight away, Voice Hubs can point them in the right direction.

Collate materials for an Arts Award portfolio

It's easy to collate posts on Voice ready for moderation. Simply, create the post, tick the box that says 'add to your portfolio?' and select the level of the award it's for.  

Find out more about how to use Voice to complete parts of a portfolio, or check out these resources for creating a digital portfolio.

If they would prefer their portfolio to be visible to a select few only and not the wider Voice community they can still post them to Voice and tick the box that says 'only show on my profile & portfolio' which means it's accessible only from that user's area; allowing advisers & peers to still find the piece and comment.

Read how-to-guides
We've collated a wide selection of how-to-guides which offer a variety of practical tips and tools from young creatives. From how to network as a young artist to how to be a theatre producer.

Join the Arts Award Alumni
When young people join Voice they become part of the Arts Award Alumni where they can get discounts, careers advice, and join our networking opportunities.  Encourage them to make the most of this!
