Bring Your Ideas Alive!

Gain 16 UCAS Points Doing Something You Love

Want to join the Peshkar Arts Award Youth Steering Group?

Peter Wood joined our steering group back in 2013 and has recently won The Chris May Award for Personal Achievement – alongside a handful of other young people – at Curious Minds’ North West Cultural Education awards ceremony.

Peter joined the Peshkar Youth Steering Group back in 2013. Peter had always had the ambition to write and complete a film script for a zombie film. Joining Peshkar that was his ultimate challenge. Which he achieved last year and gained feedback from creative professionals on how to develop his ideas.

Peter had engaged only a little bit in the arts before he started to be a member of Peshkar but over the following 3 years Peter would get involved with a huge smorgasbord of arts and events. From digital art to theatre to visual arts.

During this time Peter has been able to work his way right the way through Bronze, Silver and Gold Arts Award. Achieving his Gold Arts Award in 2016. Allowing Peter to obtain a qualification, which is equivalent to an AS-Level, as well as giving 16 UCAS points if Peter wanted to go onwards to University.

Being a member of the steering group has helped Peter gain confidence, qualifications, make friends, complete parts of his ambitions and give him focus and open doors to his future career.

If you would like to be given similar opportunities that Peter has had and make part of your dreams come true then drop us a line on the email below and we can tell you how you can get involved with Peshkar and join our Youth Steering Group.

Originally formed in 1991 as a community theatre project for Oldham’s Asian community, Peshkar has evolved into the UK’s leading participatory arts organisation targeting young people who are deemed hard to reach or socially disadvantaged.
