What People Think

Robin Iles, Venues and Learning Manager for Winchester at Hampshire Cultural Trust said

“We are delighted that this year, as well as the display of artists’ work in the City Space gallery, we have been able to offer local practitioners an opportunity to respond to the wonderful collections the Trust has on permanent display in Winchester City Museum. We can’t wait to see how these artists turn the enthusiasm they expressed in a recent museum visit into works that offer a different perspective on familiar and much loved exhibits.”

Kate Cloud, Head of Economy and Arts at Winchester City Council commented

“We recognise that creative industries are one of our key sectors. We are looking to either make artists sustainable business people, or encourage career progression within the creative sector. Most of all, we want artists to keep producing their excellent work, and keep contributing to the local economy."
