Lighthouse is an Arts Award Supporter, which means that we can support young people and organisations to achieve their Arts Award.
Our Arts Award Supporter activities are based on our programme and include theatre, music, dance, literature, visual art, comedy, contemporary circus and film and are open to individual young people, schools and youth projects.
We offer a range of opportunities for young people, from simple workshops, performances and opportunities to exhibit and perform through to undertaking a work placement and volunteering.
