Become an Outside In artist

Why should you become an Outside In artist?
Joining Outside In is free and you can be a part of a national charity celebrating the talent of artists outside of the mainstream. Outside In aims to create of a fairer art world which challenges traditional values and institutional judgements about whose work can and should be displayed.

Training: Via the Step Up programme, Outside In offers courses designed to help you develop skills and confidence, leading to the possibility of paid employment as workshop facilitators, researchers and curators. 
Publicity: Outside In is all about showcasing talent and providing a platform for this to be seen. There are many ways you can share your story and art, from writing for the Outside In blog and being featured as Artist of the Month or a ‘Wednesday Wonder’, to interviews and articles in the press.

What benefits are there to having an online gallery?
An online gallery allows you to have a digital presence, you will get a weblink which you can share and receive comments on your artwork. Your online gallery is just that, a space for you to curate and showcase your creative journey.
