Associate Circle


Associate Patrons are dedicated supporters of Outset Scotland whose regular donations form an important contribution to our charitable activities.

Associate Patrons’ donations enable us to support the most adventurous contemporary art projects of our time. The committed interest and engagement of our Associates is greatly valued by Scotland’s contemporary art community.

What does being a Patron unlock?
  • Impact: Outset’s ability to tap into art-world expertise and intelligence, and our dedication to funding projects at a formative stage, ensures the greatest possible value and impact for our supporters’ funds.
  • Insight: Creative professionals and artists appreciate the enthusiasm and dedication of Outset Scotland supporters, and are generous in sharing their processes and aspirations with us.
  • Internationalism: Associate Patrons are invited to attend select international trips annually, often in the company of fellow Outset supporters from around the world.
  • Engagement: At home, our bespoke supporters’ programme is diverse, welcoming and dynamic. Supporters encounter all that is spirited and original – with private visits to artists’ studios and galleries, curator-led exhibition tours, performance and discussion events, visits to public and private collections, trips around Scotland and convivial conversations with creative professionals over dinner.
