10 days is a biennial, interdisciplinary, arts platform organised by arts professionals in Winchester, dedicated to making contemporary arts accessible and engaging the widest possible audience.
We strive to link all sections of the community through exhibitions and other participatory events. 10 days has a core commitment to the visual arts and welcomes participation from all forms of practice.
