Partners Grants

OUTSET PARTNERS | LISTEN, DISCUSS, TRANSFORM

Drawing on more than fifteen years of expertise in arts philanthropy, Outset launched Outset Partners in 2018, a new responsive patronage model for realising the institutional vision and supporting impactful change in the arts landscape. A diverse group of dynamic philanthropists, Outset Partners work together to meet the evolving needs of the creative ecosystem, and exercise total flexibility in the ways they are able to offer support.

Outset Partners believe it is essential to support and champion brave and intelligent transformation in the arts and culture sector, as well as projects that defy traditional categorisation. Their approach to collective decision-making is based on understanding the pressing needs and urgent challenges facing institutions today and what is motivating practitioners in the present moment.

Now in its second year, the invitation-only Outset Partners Grants Programme will award up to £275,000 in grants per annum to eligible public institutions.

The awarded institutions will be announced in June 2020
