Now we’re all at home for a little while, the Octagon have put together a brand new booklet so you can discover more about the arts  from inside your own home! 

What is a Discover Arts Award?

Arts Awards are nationally recognised qualifications for young people that develop arts and leadership skills. Discover is the first level of Arts Award.
