Young Arts Awards

Historically, each year the BSDFAS committee has reviewed arts projects submitted by  a number of primary schools in Bishops Stortford (and closely surrounding villages) and chosen one to receive financial support.

Financial awards have also been made at secondary school level to 'A' level students who, in the eyes of our 'Young Arts' sub-committee, have shown outstanding artistic abilities.

September December 2017

 After several years of allocating funds to primary school projects and to individual senior school students we are in a process of review. Inevitably a change in arrangements bring new issues to consider and accommodate.


Our plans for primary schools would include the offer to support trips to an arts venue as the cost of travel becomes increasingly difficult for schools to meet. Locally these could be for example Audley End, The Henry Moore Foundation ,Parnham Mill or The Fitzwilliam.


We are looking to provide senior schools in the area with a chance to bid for new equipment to develop or enhance an aspect of their art curriculum for example screen printing, glazing or graphics. We will publish more details once the schools have been canvassed.
