TrinityTalent | Class of 2020
BY: Nici West
02 Nov 2020
2020 has been a particularly tough year for young people but many have continued to make art and develop skills in the face of a world-wide pandemic. Nici West, editor of Voice Magazine explains how we can help to celebrate their creativity and determination - and also to mark Arts Award’s 15th birthday.
TrinityTalent is our annual recognition scheme for young people achieving Trinity College London's arts qualifications in the UK. Each year, with Trinity, we create a gallery of young artists who have shone in their artistic achievement, creativity, progress or leadership. Meet the Class of 2019
We need your help to find the Class of 2020. Nominations are now extended to 18 December!
Please nominate young people you work with who have achieved Trinity qualifications in Arts Award, drama or music during the year. To mark 15 years of Arts Award, TrinityTalent Class of 2020 includes a special category where we invite you to nominate Arts Award alumni who achieved an award any time before 2018.
In line with the principles of Arts Award, we want to find young artists who have experimented, innovated and worked with others to achieve their artistic goals. We want to celebrate those who share their skills through mentoring, teaching or leading activities. We’re interested in people who have shown commitment and determination, perhaps in the face of challenges.
Young people previously featured have told us about their pride in being selected and the boost it gave to their confidence. Arts Award advisers have also commented on the value of this extra recognition.
Our panel will select the stand-out examples of young artistic flair and progress, and each young person will be profiled on Voice magazine, receive a TrinityTalent badge and get future invitations to advise on or support Trinity’s work. We want TrinityTalent to add to young people’s record of achievement and help them on their creative journey.
Here’s what a past nominees has said:
'I felt privileged to be part of a magazine feature and I feel that being chosen for something like this has boosted my confidence.' TrinityTalent class member
