Outside In is a catalyst for change. Founded in 2006, it is now an established national charity that aims to provide a platform for artists who face significant barriers to the art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation.

Outside In’s work covers three main areas: Artist development, exhibitions and training. These activities, supported by fundraising and communications, all aim to create a fairer art world by supporting artists, creating opportunities and educating organisations.

Since its inception, Outside In has engaged with more than 5,000 artists traditionally excluded from the mainstream art world, reached a quarter of a million audience members and gained more than 80 partner organisations nationally. It has held more than 50 exhibitions to date and now provides opportunities and support for more than 2,600 artists.

In the next three years the charity will work to create a national platform to support the delivery of its programmes. It will do this through working in partnership with key strategic arts organisations across the UK to act as hubs of activity and support.

Outside In’s new website is the best way to stay up to date with the award-winning charity’s news, events and exhibitions.
It also offers great ways to explore the galleries of thousands of talented artists and get involved – either as artists, organisations or supporters.

Why do I need to reset my password?

For security reasons your Outside In password can’t be copied across to the new website. As a result you will need to reset your password – you can make it be the same as your old one if you like.
