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.

A record 23 awards were made in 2017 and the Arts Guild is delighted that a number of previous award winners have gone on to successful careers in the arts.
