Southampton Cultural Development Trust

These are exciting and challenging times for Southampton, and Southampton Cultural Development Trust is a key driver in the city’s plans for regeneration through transformational cultural initiatives.  These will bring inspiration, opportunity and enjoyment for Southampton’s residents and visitors, and will establish the city as a major cultural destination.

Our objective is to support development of the Cultural Quarter, through fundraising and advocacy.  Our priority is to raise funds to complete the new arts complex, with its galleries, performance and film spaces, planned to open in 2016.  We are actively developing support from grant-making organisations, individuals, business, and educational institutions.

The completed Cultural Quarter will bring huge social, educational and economic benefits to individuals, organisations and business in the city and region.  Whilst the fundraising target is a significant challenge, we believe this to be achievable with the support of the people and organisations of Southampton, Hampshire, and beyond.

We hope you will join us to help make this happen.

Stephen Boyce, Chairman
