Arts Award + Artsmark


Artsmark enables organisations to celebrate, strengthen, advocate and evaluate their provision for arts and culture. Baltic can support you to achieve and maintain Artsmark status.

Having Artsmark status not only contributes to the cultural aspect of Ofsted’s requirements but demonstrates the value of arts and culture in your organisation, for your children and young people, and for your community.
