The EDGE: Engage, Discover, Generate Enthusiasm


The EDGE Project is a Wessex Heritage Trust (formerly Hampshire Museums and Galleries Trust) initiative which gives young people the opportunity to organise and run events. These events can be almost anything, there is just one condition: they have to be staged in or around a Hampshire Museum, Art Centre, Discovery Centre, Theatre, Library or Gallery.


Over the years there have been many teams of EDGE project workers based in and around Hampshire - Aldershot, Alton, Andover, Basingstoke, Gosport, New Milton, Winchester and Whitchurch. You can read about past projects using the Past Project link at the top of the page.


The EDGE Project enables young people to have their say and run projects and events relating to or within these spaces. It is an opportunity to be creative, share ideas, learn new skills and meet new people.


The Panels are involved in every aspect of the project from sponsorship and marketing to research, delivery of events and evaluation. Projects can involve photography, music, theatre and performance, multimedia, filming, dance, DJing, graffiti and much more. The sky is the limit!
