Arts Award Local Area Network

Together the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Lewisham Education Arts Network (LEAN) and Greenwich Dance are creating an Arts Award Network. This initiative aims to support schools, arts organisations, artists, arts award supporters and centres and all those interested in helping children and young people develop as artists and arts leaders through Arts Awards. This network is supported by A New Direction, London's leader in cultural education, and will focus on the boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham.

The Arts Award Network is likely to provide Arts Award advisor training, meetings featuring case studies and success stories from a wide range of organisations from all over the capital, and provide opportunities for partnerships to form, all with the aim of improving the Arts Awards offering for young people in South East London.
