In addition to his painting, photography, and performance-based art, Christopher was also the Visual Program Director at Blue Room Gallery, one of the city's largest not-for-profit contemporary art spaces.

In addition, Christopher was also a founding member and lead staff writer for San Francisco Art Magazine, where he published editorial/review pieces documenting San Francisco's emerging "New Mission" art scene. His op-ed on the proper artistic response to 9/11 has been republished academically.

Christopher Stout actively donates his art and time to support New York City not-for-profit 501(c)(3) visual arts organizations, including Visual AIDS, Arts in Bushwick, and NutureART. Christopher's modus operandi is, "solidarity for arts, and solidarity with New York artists."
