Hampshire Cultural Trust

Promoting the visual arts

We are currently developing a Visual Arts Strategy to deliver a programme of activity to support and promote the visual arts in Hampshire.

This is a varied programme of work and includes activities which both develop new audiences for visual art and crafts, such as exhibitions, commissions for public spaces and opportunities for participation. This will also support artists living and working in Hampshire, allowing them to contribute to the development of a stronger creative economy.

We also work in partnership with other Hampshire County Council departments to develop arts activity in support of their policies and priorities. These include support for commissioning and purchasing art for new developments and refurbishments, advise on planning exhibitions – often in non-gallery spaces - sourcing artists for participatory projects and fundraising.

How can we help you?
