Investec Corporate and Investment Banking has announced a two year sponsorship deal with Outside In, an award-winning arts charity which works to provide a national platform for artists who face significant barriers to the art world.
Investec is Outside In’s first corporate sponsor. The charity will be working with Investec, the international corporate and investment bank, for an initial period of two years to host a variety of bespoke events. One of the first events will be held at CGP London to coincide with the Park Life residency and exhibition being organised in partnership with Outside In, CGP and Bethlem Gallery.
Marc Steene, founder and director of Outside In said the charity was ‘delighted’ to have partnered with Investec. He added: “Outside In provides a bridge and means in order to support artists often overlooked by the art world. Our unique position from working with artists struggling on the margins to the higher echelons of prestigious arts venues and organisations in the art world, means that we will be able to provide an ‘out of the ordinary’ experience to Investec and its clients.”
“Outside In is a unique charity doing important work”, commented Investec’s Andrew Pinder. “It’s tackling an issue that resonates strongly both with us and our clients, and we’re exceptionally proud to be able to support this worthwhile cause as it builds out nationwide to reach even more people.”
