Corporate Partners and Foundations

Corporate Partners and Foundations

Outset’s unique position means that they can approach situations in a new way, bringing entrepreneurial thinking and independence.

Kirsten Dunne, Senior Cultural Strategy Officer at Greater London Authority

Thanks to our partnership with Outset, we have been able to identify and address a real and growing issue being experienced by young artists in London. With the creation of the Tiffany & Co. x Outset Studiomakers prize, by 2019, we will have funded 21 young artists with a workspace for a year to begin their careers; an accomplishment we are extremely proud of.

It is such an honour to partner with Outset in launching the hub at Somerset House. We hope this space will become a place of artistic exchanges and multi-disciplinary collaborations – accelerating solutions for creative professionals and businesses alike.

As an Outset Corporate Partner, you underwrite a project that would not happen without your support.

We prepare rigorously for our projects, running due diligence and taking informed risks to ensure funding has the best possible impact. If you have a similar eye for detail, you can allocate funds to specific projects as a Partner – following their development and having direct involvement from the outset.

Our partners are foundations and businesses who seek to support contemporary art.

Outset offers bespoke entrepreneurial, collaborative and empowering solutions aligned with your personal objectives or brand values, relying on 16 years of expertise with all aspects of the non-commercial art world.

Through our international network and local representation in eight chapters across Europe, the Middle East and South Asia, our Corporate Partners attain national and international exposure with their support of new art, which can be scaled according to their needs and ambitions. Together, we respond strategically to real needs in contemporary art and inspire audiences along the way.
