Outset has been helping artists to realise their visions since 2003: we give strategic advice, we broker new relationships, we build communities of interest, we expand public audiences, we create circles of trust.

Outset Estonia was founded in 2015. Under expert guidance, Outset’s directors, patrons and partners provide funds to respond to what artists and curators really need.

Our ethos is best expressed through our name: be there at the outset. That’s why we can offer our supporters – both individuals and corporates – experiences, insights and opportunities they won’t find anywhere else.
