Changing lives through culture
Hampshire Cultural Trust is an independent charity, established in 2014 to promote Hampshire as a county that offers outstanding cultural experiences to both its residents and visitors.
Our charitable purpose is changing lives through culture. We are committed to achieving this even as the world changes rapidly due to the coronavirus crisis.
From museums to galleries to arts centres, we manage 23 attractions across the county, welcoming over 740,000 people each year. Currently all of our venues are closed as we do our utmost to protect our staff, volunteers and visitors and prevent the spread of coronavirus.
When open, we run a huge variety of exhibitions, events, workshops, classes and projects for both young and old, in schools and in communities, with particular emphasis on reaching people who are vulnerable or disadvantaged and would not normally be able to access arts and culture. In addition, we care for 2.5 million objects that relate to Hampshire’s rich and internationally important cultural heritage.
In response to our 23 venues being closed, we have launched Culture on Call, a new digital publication bringing culture and communities together during this challenging time.
