Bronze Arts Award with Oasis

We are delighted to share the achievements of a group of young refugees and asylum seekers from Oasis that we recently worked with to deliver the Bronze Level Arts Award Qualification. Over ten weeks during the summer, the group worked on a series of practical photography workshops, experienced the arts through visits to arts organisations, researched artists of their choice and presented Skillshare sessions on a chosen subject. They worked incredibly hard to complete their portfolios and all five young people who entered achieved their Bronze Arts Award Qualification and we are immensely proud of their success!
