Arts Award

We are delighted to announce that EFDSS is an Arts Award Supporter.

Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification which inspires young people to grow their artistic and leadership talents. Young people can get credit for doing the things they enjoy – like going to gigs, talking about acts they have seen, playing their instrument and making music or dancing with others.
