Outside In named as official charity partner for the Self Portrait Prize, 2019

 Award-winning arts charity, Outside In and the Ruth Borchard Collection – which is managed by Piano Nobile – are delighted to announce a new partnership for the Biennial Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize 2019.


Outside In aims to provide a platform for artists who face a significant barrier to the art world due to health, disability, social circumstances or isolation.

Since its inception, Outside In has engaged with more than 5,000 artists traditionally excluded from the mainstream art world. It has held more than 50 exhibitions to date and now provides opportunities and support for more than 2,600 artists.

In 2013, Outside In won the Charity Award in the Arts, Culture and Heritage category.

In 2016, Outside In became an independent charity in its own right and in 2017 it joined theArts Council England’s National Portfolio.


Marc Steene, founder and director of Outside In, said: “Outside In is delighted to be an official partner of the 2019 Ruth Borchard biennial self portrait prize. Working together we will be able to support and include the many talented, but overlooked artists in our communities to take part in this prestigious event.”
