Goodbye 10 days Winchester

It feels difficult to say goodbye to 10 days and there are many people to thank for its success. The project came into being at a particular moment in time, a time of change and hope, when many factors worked together to forge new opportunity, bringing people together within a common project.

We are especially grateful for all the involvement during our final ONLINE event at 10 days • 10 years facebook and Instagram and regret we were unable to develop the planned film and associated public event for 2020.

Winchester remains an extraordinary cultural centre with a rich, diverse and talented creative community. In the new world that emerges out of the current Covid-19 crisis, we feel sure that the connectedness, excitement and endeavour of 10 days will continue to find expression. With change comes renewed vision and ambition and we wish you all the very best for the future.

The 10 days website along with the record of work on social media will remain available for the foreseeable future as reference to the work and success of 10 days projects.
