We are delighted to have been awarded major funding in the last few days from both Arts Council England and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
Arts Council England have announced Outside In will join their new National Portfolio for 2018-22. The four years of NPO funding illustrates Arts Council England's commitment to, and confidence in, Outside In during this exciting phase of development for the organisation. In addition to this, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation have pledged to support Outside In with a two-year funding commitment.
Backing from these two major funding partners will enable Outside In to deliver our ambitious plans for the new charity which include expanding our Step Up training courses, developing our exhibition and commissioning programme, creating a new website and exploring new digital platforms. This will allow Outside In to work with more artists than ever before.
We are incredibly grateful to Arts Council England, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and to our existing supporters the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, the George Dannatt Trust, The Roddick Foundation and our private donors.
