Stephen White was given the opportunity to exhibit at Pallant House Gallery as a recognition of his hard work and contribution to the Community Programme. His artistic journey began when Stephen joined The Hans Feibusch Club at Pallant House Gallery, which was set up to offer free art workshops for people who require additional support to access art.

Although Stephen had always ‘dabbled in painting', working with others and learning more about art in the context of the Gallery, gave him the confidence to develop his skills as an artist. Stephen went on to win runner up for Outside In in 2007 for his colourful painting ‘Let the Blue Birds Fly Free'. The biennial Open Art Competition is the main vehicle for Outside In, set up to bring work by marginalised and outsider artists to a wider public.
