Diss Corn Hall launches Arts Award project

Three graduate volunteers at the Diss Corn Hall will soon be launching a new youth arts award project encouraging the young to use the historic venue.

Jessica Daw, Mary-Anne Barclay and Laura Purling will be launching the Arts Award project in mid-January, a nationally recognized qualification the trio are trained to moderate.

The Award is in bronze, silver and gold levels and is a way that young people aged 11-18 can gain a qualification from their involvement with any aspect of Art.

The Arts Award at Diss Corn Hall will be open to all young people in the age range, based around a weekly group at the Corn Hall on Wednesdays from 4pm-6pm, four Saturday workshops led by arts professionals, culminating in a showcase performance at the end of March.

The three graduates have degrees in English Literature, music and contemporary theatre.

The trio are in the process of getting funding for the project from the Youth Innovation Fund and will know whether this is successful or not in December.

This will mean that the whole project will be free.
