Have you thought of running Arts Award Discover in a day? By taking part in arts activities and finding out about artists & their work and sharing what they’ve done, families can complete Arts Award Discover and children can receive a certificate from Trinity College London. Discover can be done in one visit or spread out across several – and even more than one venue! Find out more here  It can be a good way of encouraging repeat visits and building up a lasting relationship with family audiences.

Any art form can be used, from drama and literature to stone carving and ceramics or a mixture. Discover is all about discovering and enjoying the arts as part of everyday life as well as in galleries, theatres and historic buildings. You can read about how some museums and galleries have done Arts Award with families here and watch a short film here

To run Discover, you will need a trained Arts Award adviser. If no one in your organisation has trained at Discover and Explore level, you can find upcoming training courses across the country on the Arts Award website
