At the end of April the Outside In team travelled to The Museum Dr. Guislain, Ghent, Belgium. We spent the day at The 2012 Symposium, 'Outsiders on the Map' spreading the word about Outside In to organisations from 16 different countries across Europe.
"On the Map, Exploring European Outsider Art " was launched at the event. The publication explores 60 initiatives – good practices in the field of outsider art – in 26 countries in Europe. Not only does it look at the places where outsider art is created (workshops, sheltered workshops, etc), but also the places where it is presented (museums, galleries, etc). As Outside In is featured in the book we were invited to speak at the symposium alongside many of the other initiatives around Euope.
Look out for news in the future about new European partnerships.
