Arts Award Supporter and Artsmark Partner Organisation

As an Artsmark Partner, we’re proud to be working in partnership with schools and settings on their Artsmark Award journey.

By supporting Artsmark settings, we’re helping put the arts at the heart of education, inspiring young people to create, experience and participate in high quality arts and culture. Find out more about Artsmark at To find out how we can support your Artsmark journey, please email: Val Tobiass, Learning and Engagement Manager (Schools).

As an Arts Award Supporter organisation, we can help you achieve your Arts Award. You can visit our changing exhibitions at The Granary and The Gymnasium Galleries which are free to enter and use evidence from your visit towards completing your Arts Award portfolio.

For school teachers looking to do Arts Award Discover please see our Berwick Arts Award Discover Trail page and the supporting website.

For school teachers taking pupils through their Arts Award Explore level: we can talk to your pupils about our organisation during your visit (please contact us to arrange), pupils can also explore the artists and their work on show, both of which can be used to complete Part B “Explore” section of this level.

Occasionally we hold drop-in workshops in our galleries open to all ages. Workshops are delivered by practicing artists and are free to attend, they are an opportunity to try out new techniques with an artist available to support your activity, this can be used towards your participating in the arts evidence which is required at all Arts Award levels.

For those undertaking their Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Award alongside visiting our exhibitions, you can visit artist talks and other events held throughout the year. Please sign up to our newsletter on our homepage to be kept up to date with future events.
