We work with and commission artists to make new site-responsive work revealing the marginal, often forgotten and less commercial aspects of our coastal towns and communities. There is a b-side festival every two years in Weymouth and Portland.
A b-side festival can provide moments of reflection, beauty, surreal interventions and unexpected encounters with art.
Our last Festival was in September 2016, take a look at the 2016 archive to see the breadth of work we produce.
