The keynote speech to open the conference will be delivered by multi-disciplinary British artist Bobby Baker, and panel discussions during the conference will focus on ‘supporting the artist’s voice’ and ‘exhibiting the artist’s voice.’ Presenters at the conference include the Living Museum (the Netherlands), Out By Art (Sweden), Venture Arts (UK), Joy of Sound (UK) and Look Kloser (UK). Panellists will include Garvald Artists (Scotland), Headway East London (UK), Arts Project Australia (Australia), Blue Circus (Finland), Creahm/MadMusee (Belgium), and Creative Minds (UK). In addition to all of this, there are dedicated slots for artist presentations that will be happening throughout the conference.

There will also be an opportunity to find out more about the work of Outside In through presentations from director Marc Steene, and by taking part in creative workshops and tours led by Outside In artists. The conference will run alongside a new exhibition of work by renowned outsider artist Scottie Wilson at Pallant House Gallery, which in turn will be accompanied by a special commissioned work by an Outside In artist in response to Wilson’s practice.

Tickets are £150 for the weekend, with the option to add on £75 for the VIP programme and/or £25 for a dinner at Pallant House Gallery on Friday 4 May. It is also possible to just purchase a ticket to the opening Friday night with keynote speaker Bobby Baker for £15.

We are offering travel bursaries of £50 for up to ten Outside In artists. Artists who receive a complimentary ticket will not be eligible for a travel bursary. If you would like to be considered for a travel bursary, please email with the location you would be travelling to Chichester from, and your reasons for wanting to attend the conference.
