Arts Guild > Arts Guild Talented Young People Awards

Do you have a keen interest in the Arts ?

Are you between the ages of 12 and 24 ?

High on our list of priorities is a commitment to supporting and encouraging the development of young people with a passion, ambition and outstanding talent to pursue a future career in the arts.

If you live in Stevenage or have attended a Stevenage secondary school you may be able to apply for an Award from the Stevenage Arts Guild. This may be for funding towards a specific element of your development and training, for example, towards the cost of buying a new instrument or art materials; private music or dance lessons; competition fees or promoting and exhibiting your work.

In 2019, we made 18 awards to individuals - and the Arts Guild is delighted that a number of previous award winners have gone on to successful careers in the arts.

In line with UK Government requirements, the Stevenage Community Arts Centre has been closed until further notice.  Proceeds from the hire of the Arts Centre are used to fund our Talented Young Peoples award scheme and provide financial support to member groups - so unfortunately, this support is impacted until the Centre is back up and running.

The Arts Guild has therefore reluctantly been forced to postpone the TYP Awards for 2020 - but we look forward to being able to resume these next year with applications re-opening in January 2021.

However if you are interested in a career or further education in the arts, then we encourage you to contact us at any time of year by email, or by contacting the Chairman of Stevenage Arts Guild on 01438 350217.
