About Hearts for the Arts

The National Campaign for the Arts brings you the Hearts for the Arts Awards, delivered by UK Theatre. This is an initiative to reward and thank Councils, Councillors and Council Officers who are overcoming financial challenges to ensure the arts stay at the centre of community life.

For more information on the awards, please visit the Hearts for the Arts webpage or check our Twitter feed

You can make nominations for four award categories:
1. Best Local Authority Arts Initiative
2. Best Local Authority Arts Project Encouraging Community Cohesion
3. Best Local Authority Champion - Councillor
4. Best Local Authority Champion - Officer


We welcome multiple nominations. If you have several people or projects who deserve an award, please complete a separate nomination form each time.

Your nomination will be shared with our judges, but we will not share any personal information you give us. We will only use the data you provide for the purpose of coordinating the Hearts for the Arts Awards.
