Introduction to my silver arts award

Hello my name is Tammy and I’m 18 years old. I am currently doing my silver arts award with Plymouth Dance and Exim Dance Company.

For those of you that don’t know what he silver arts award is it is a level 2 qualification and it has two units that you need to complete. Unit 1 is all about arts practice and unit 2 is all about arts leadership.
The silver arts award involves achieving an arts challenge as well as reviewing arts events and researching about an artist to write about and art organisations as well. It also involves delivering an arts leadership project with other people. The whole award should take around 60 hours to complete.
As part of my arts award I needed to choose an arts challenge which mean mangling and delivering an arts event and I have chosen to organise and deliver a digital photography exhibition this is called screen shots.

Screen shots is a photo exhibition which exhibit photos of young dancers around Plymouth to show the incredible talent these young dancers have in the city. The exhibition will be shown as part of 2015 and goes live very soon, so look out for more information over the next few days!
