Chippindale Venture and Workshop - Trust Annual Report 1997

The annual striking rate has continued at one six-day Venture spread over six weeks and one one-day Workshop. Participating schools have, without exception, welcomed the project.

A recent Venture was followed up by inviting the young participants to visit an architect's practice on a full working day, where they were briefed on how it was organised and operated. This also included the practice's landscape department and a building designed by the practice and now in full operation. This follow-up was deemed to be very successful.

Future possibilities under discussion are to increase the number of Ventures per year, and to introduce adult Ventures and Workshops using the Heritage Centre as a base. These would concentrate on Winchester adults and schools within the area of interest of the Trust.

The Trust has agreed that it will underwrite the cost of the Venture, but hoped that a proportion of the cost might, if possible, be raised from other sources.
