MAST is an Arts Award Centre and proud to deliver Arts Awards throughout our youth programme, including the Mayflower Youth Theatre groups, Mayflower Young Writers, Mayflower & City-eye Young Filmmakers and alongside Trainee Vacancies. MAST is also an Arts Award mentor and able to support young people in achieving their Gold Arts Awards, which equates to 16 points on the UCAS tariff.

As a mentor, we will be creating an Arts Award Forum which will meet across the year to allow schools or arts organisations who are running Arts Awards the opportunity to get together to discuss their projects and share advice on how best to deliver the awards.
