AmicusHorizon has completed a successful summer scheme that has inspired young people to get involved in arts.
An impressive 69 young residents in London and Surrey have received a Discover Arts Award after learning a range of news skills.
Young people can achieve the award through any arts, media or cultural activity.
The housing association’s activities have ranged from photography and film-making to dance and drama workshops.
The scheme has taken place between 29 July and 30 August. Neighbourhoods that have participated include Lansdowne Green, Stockwell; Christie Drive, Croydon; Subrosa Drive, Merstham; Prestwood Close, Plumstead and South Bermondsey.
In Saxonfield Close, Tulse Hill, young people took part in an outdoor concert on 2 August following a five-day course.
Here they learnt about musical instruments and then showcased their talents with singing, dancing and playing musical instruments.
Tom Arkle, Project Officer at AmicusHorizon, said: “It’s been great to see so many young residents developing their creativity and communication skills. We’ve watched as their confidence has grown. Summer holidays can often be a time when boredom kicks in for young people. But the Discover Arts Award has been engaging, fun and educational.”
Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.
To achieve the award, young people have to discover the arts around them, find out about artists and their work and share their experiences with others.
