Update 3 April 2020

To all our customers and supporters

All arts centres, galleries and museums may be closed at Hampshire Cultural Trust but that doesn’t mean that we’ll stop bringing you the very best of arts and culture in Hampshire – our doors are still open, virtually!

Culture on Call is our new blog, which we have launched to bring culture and communities together during the challenge that is the coronavirus crisis. From fascinating insights into local history to fun things to make and do at home, curious objects from our collections and more, we’ll be bringing arts, culture and heritage straight to you.

In Lockdown: Open Up we’re asking you to tell us how you feel about the lockdown, coronavirus and the effect it is having on you. Whether you’re worried and struggling, or upbeat and chipper, reach out and say something.

We’re capturing the highs and the lows, gathering public thoughts and mood for posterity. Our aim is to record and display what you tell us and to invite artists and creatives to respond, too, using your contributions to make artworks that reflect our shared experience. Tell us how you’re feeling today at Lockdown: Open Up

Please visit Culture On Call to find out more!

Finally, as an arts and heritage charity, we are like so many people and businesses facing uncertainty in our future funding given the current situation. We are appreciative of the continued support and generosity of all our customers and supporters. Any donation you can give will help us keep people connected.

Thank you all and stay well.

Yours, Paul

Paul Sapwell
CEO, Hampshire Cultural Trust
