Arts Award winner Young at Art AABNI
Young at Art are delighted to be awarded the Arts and Business NI Arts Award and the Cultural Branding Award for our partnership with Translink. The annual Arts & Business NI Awards was held on Weds 24 Jan in The MAC, Belfast.

In this our 20th year, it is fantastic to be recognised for our work over the years, now reaching in excess of 46,00 children and adults a year. We have forged lasting relationships with a range of partners across the private sector that support our work. The Arts Award includes a cheque for £3,000, and Young at Art are pleased to be able to put this towards an even bigger programme of activity at the upcoming Belfast Children's Festival 9-14 March.


The strong partnership with Translink won the Cultural Branding Award and was shortlisted in the Cultural Engagement Award. Translink places a lot of value in the creativity and innovation that Young at Art bring to their brand and to meeting core commercial objectives and delivering on CSR. Young at Art relishes the chance to develop bespoke performances, to create fun and engaging marketing materials, and to engage with schools and communities, meeting wider organisational core values of bringing quality arts experiences to all children, regardless of who they are or where they are from. 


We thank our staff, board members, artists, event managers & volunteers, past and present, and the host of amazing funders, sponsors, supporters and friends.
