Discover Arts Award - online
We are delighted to offer Discover Arts Award online to our Youth Theatre participants (7-10's).
Arts Award supports you to discover the arts all around you and take part in different arts activities - anything from animation to singing, you can find out about artists and their work and share your art discoveries with your friends and family.
You share your experience in a portfolio or arts log and receive a certificate when you complete your Arts Award.
Find out more about Discover Arts Award and see if it's something you'd like to do here.
Travelling Light is an Arts Award Centre and our advisors can help you to achieve your Arts Award.
What you will need:
- Access to the internet on a device that allows you to browse the internet, watch videos and communicate with others.
- Paper and pens or a way of recording what you have done - this can also be a word document or photo journal.
Travelling Light will provide:
- An Arts Award Advisor who will help you plan your Arts Award, share ideas and tips.
What do we mean by the arts?
Lots of things! Arts Award recognises a wide range of arts activities:
Music, drama, dance, storytelling, circus, painting, drawing, sculpture, fashion, design, architecture, books, poetry, journalism, photography, film, web design, game design - and more!
What's an Arts Log?
You will record everything you do for your Arts Award in an Arts Log (sometimes called a portfolio). You can include photos, drawings, writings, notes, videos and your adviser will help you to do this. This log will be a record of your Arts Award for you to keep.

Part A - Discover
Take part in a range of arts activities to learn more about the arts.
Part B - Find out

Part C - Share
Share what you have enjoyed about doing your Awards Award with others.

Create - Perform - Experience - Connect - Tell your story
We run three weekly youth theatre groups from our studio in Barton Hill Settlement, Bristol (although currently all face-to-face meetings are postponed). No experience or audition necessary, these groups are open to everyone and provide a safe space for young people to express themselves each week.
Being part of Travelling Light Youth Theatre you will:
Create your own work. We are a devising company which means we shape the stories we tell together.
Perform your shows at theatres, showcases and unique locations around Bristol.
Experience working with professional directors, designers and choreographers.
Connect with friends, discover new skills and have fun!
