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 India was founded in 2011 to promote contemporary art within India while providing a platform for Indian artists both nationally and internationally. Under expert guidance, Outset’s directors 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.
