Arts Award is taking part in CILIP Carnegie Shadowing!
At Arts Award we are super excited to be joining schools and young people nationwide and shadow the CILIP Carnegie Medal. It's no secret that our office is full of book lovers, so we are all eagerly getting stuck into the shortlist.
Literature-based Arts Awards currently count for less than 5% of the total Arts Awards completed, and we want to change that. Groups who shadow either the Carnegie or Kate Greenaway medals are already taking part in activities which contribute to an Arts Award, at any level, so why not combine the two? Being in a reading group can count towards Discover, Explore and Bronze Part A, as well as counting towards sections of Silver and Gold. Even simply reading a book counts as being an audience member, so anyone can access Arts Award through literature.
To help get you started we have created a handy fact sheet for the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Awards. We also have downloadable mapping resources, and a whole host of other support options available to all trained Advisers.
We would love to hear from centres who are using book award shadowing as part of their Arts Award. Email us at email@example.com, tweet us @ArtsAward or let us know on Facebook. And if you are having trouble getting started you can always call us on 020 7820 6178.
