As Project Co-ordinator for Exchanging Notes Hartlepool I’m always looking for ways to broaden young people’s horizons. Something else I look for is new approaches to Arts Award. I have some work that I’d like to share that has achieved both of these aims.
Anyone had experience of delivering Arts Award through music based mentoring please? Would love to hear from other projects which have done this as we (MusicNet-East) are about to try this out. We have delivered bronze through our songwriter programme but the Music based mentring is a bit different-it is delivered through individual music lessons by peripatetic music tutors.
New resource download explains different ways that young people with learning difficulties have evidenced their Arts Award achievements. Includes a range of evidencing examples including photos, film, scribed statements, creative responses, and sign and symbol-based languages.
