Finn Kelly, Gold Arts Award achiever
Finn’s Gold Arts Award allowed him to experience events organisation and what it’s like to lead a public arts event.
Please introduce yourself and your Arts Award experience.
I’m Finn Kelly and I took my Gold Arts Award in graffiti and video at Sage Gateshead.
What art forms did you take part in and why?
For my Arts Award I did graffiti mural work for the majority of my project. I also participated in a volunteer placement at Sage Gateshead working with the Programme Leader as well as working with the Music Sparks project (music for young people with Learning Difficulties).
I worked at the Music Spark show, learning about event programming, what it’s like to be backstage at productions and also some tech. I was also able to meet with the Marketing team and gain some insight into promotion/marketing for a large scale arts organisation. I also made a short video as part of my Arts Award.
