Our Outset Professionals are the next wave of entrepreneurial-minded philanthropists. Drawing on 15 years of pioneering solutions to support new art, we invite you to address the complex pressures facing the creative community in the UK today. Your portfolio of supported projects will focus on transformative art projects benefitting both urban and regional communities, artists’ and curators’ professional development, keynote publications, and Studiomakers, a private-public initiative led by Outset, in support of the Mayor of London’s mission to protect affordable space for artists and creative professionals for the long term.
