Arts Award are not accepting new registrations for the Artsbox platform. Following an external review of the platform involving current Artsbox users, we have taken the decision to close the platform and instead signpost advisers to alternative platforms for developing digital portfolios.

If you are a centre, adviser or young person who is already registered with the Artsbox site and using the platform to prepare work for an Arts Award qualification, Artsbox will continue to be available until 31 March 2018 for you to complete work and submit for certification or moderation. Registered users have received notification directly from the Arts Award team about these timescales.

The Arts Award team will shortly be launching a resource which signposts to a range of sites popular with advisers and young people for the sharing of digital work. In the meantime you might consider using Arts Award Voice where young people can post reviews and blogs for a public audience, or sites such as Googledocs, Dropbox, OneNote, Seesaw, or access blogging site wordpress.

Centres are responsible for checking that any public sites meet all privacy, data and child protection policies in place at your organisation.

Thank you

The Arts Award team
