Although Winchester is perceived as a relatively affluent area it does have pockets of deprivation and vulnerable families in need of support. We at Winchester Castle want to help make a impact on the below.
1.Children who have not been attending school regularly
2.Parents and children involved in crime and anti-social behaviour
3.Children who need help e.g. identified via the Early Help Hub
4.Adults out of work or at risk of financial exclusion and young people at risk of worklessness
5.Families affected by domestic violence and abuse
6.Families with health problems
We can do this by running free to access urban arts schools that can give opportunities to all and take away the barriers.

A open letter from Hendog(local artist)
Winchester is a place where we pride ourselves on how rich the history is. A history of kings and Hero’s, beautiful architecture and landscapes, but somewhere along the way we became so in grossed in preserving our history we stoped making it. The city became stagnant, less able to embrace new cultures and ideas.
The work i have put out across Hampshire has been openly excepted by many. My goal was to always do good and bring social awareness to things that are important to me. I have been able to express myself in a way that has educated the locals about the impact of street art, and given much needed topics attention. But due to the lack of free walls in the area the only way to do this is illegally. In my opinion everyone deserves a safe and legal space to express themselves.
I have been working with Jamie at Unit 12 community centre to set up classes for children aged between 11-16, I will personally host these art classes and hope to educate and help everyone who attends to develop real artistic skill.
Jamie has set up a crowd funder in order to keep the costs of the classes affordable to everyone. From the costs of paint to correct PPE it can get quite expensive and its my hope that the community centre doesn’t have to bare the burden of those costs. In July a 1of1 hand sprayed version of boy with kite will be going to auction 100% of the sale price will be donated to this cause. With love
