Diss Corn Hall

Coming Events:

Welcome to
Arts Award @ Diss Corn Hall

Diss Corn Hall is a registered Arts Award centre. The Arts Award is open to young people aged between 11 and 19 who want to take their Bronze or Silver Arts Award and gain a nationally acknowledged qualification which recognises their involvement and achievements in the Arts.

Arts Award helps young people to learn and share new creative skills and to make links with creative professionals in the arts and media.

To help young people work toward their awards, Diss Corn Hall hosts FREE weekly ideas workshops run by trained, CRB-checked, Arts Award advisors each Wednesday in term time from 4pm-6pm.

We also provide an exciting programme of subsidised workshops and performances by arts professionals. Some of which are open to young people not taking the Arts Award at the moment. Check out our Arts Award workshop events above for more information.

You can find out lots more information about Arts Award at www.artsaward.org.uk

Are you interested in becoming an Arts Award Adviser?

Our enthusiastic and talented group of young people is keen to continue pursuing their Awards and the Corn Hall is on the lookout for people to help run our sessions as Arts Award Advisers.

Our sessions are held on Wednesdays from 4-6pm during term time and as an adviser you would help with mentoring participants through either the Bronze or Silver Award. Adviser training will be provided if required.

Join the Cyclathon Art Trail
The Arts Award group are organising an Art Trail in Diss to coincide with the Cyclathon taking place on the 19th June. We are looking for individuals and groups to decorate bicycle wheels as we have done in the picture.

The Arts Award group will provide the wheel, collect it when it is ready and arrange the window display space for it, unless the group have their own space to display it from 12 to 26 June.

We can deliver a wheel as soon as you need it, and would like to collect the completed wheel before the end of May. Your group can also provide a short written piece to explain what the group does if you wish.

At the end of the exhibition, the Arts award group will collect all the wheels, and hope then to be able to find a space large enough for them all to be displayed together; however your group may ask for their wheel to be
returned to them if they wish.

We do hope that you will be able to join in with our display and look forward to hearing from you. Please email admin@disscornhall.co.uk and mark it for the attention of Holly.

New Home for Arts Award
After another successful year for Arts Award we've now relocated due to the exciting redevelopment of Diss Corn Hall. Our new home is across the road at Designer Makers 21, a fantastic hub of creativity which suits us down to the ground. Hopefully the numerous artists already in situ will inspire our next group. We are extremely grateful to Designer Makers for letting us use their space.

The Diss Corn Hall Arts Award Group have won the Bernard Matthews Youth Award in the Arts category for their film 'The Diss-Appearing Triangle'. As a result we now have £1000 prize money which we will use to buy film equipment so we can continue running projects in the future. If you would like to be a part of our award-winning Arts group then please come to our weekly sessions on Wednesdays from 4pm to 6pm, or contact the Diss Corn Hall box office. Finally a huge thank you and congratulations to the dozens of people who contributed to the 'Diss-Appearing Triangle'!
