Spotlight on...Asking Andover

The impact that culture and the many activities associated with it can have on people and communities is central to everything that we do at Hampshire Cultural Trust. We run projects and programmes across Hampshire, working with communities and individuals, with the old and young, with the hard-to-reach and vulnerable.

Asking Andover provided an opportunity for existing and new residents of the town to come together to explore their shared experiences and local heritage.

This social history project enabled residents to share and celebrate the rich and diverse personal histories of the people of Andover, both past and present. Participants in this project worked with heritage experts from Andover Museum and a professional artist from Chapel Arts Studios, both in the museum and in the community.

Local people brought their personal collections to life and co-curated an exhibition which captured, recorded and showcased the people of the town.  The project also encouraged a sense of shared experience and a chance to look together to the future of Andover.
