What's On

b-side is best known for its arts festival, held every two years in Weymouth & Portland. We’ve been commissioning new artworks and events for the festival since 2008. Now we have a year-round ‘home’.

Outpost is a flexible space that allows artists to experiment; and a connective space, where visitors can take part in workshops, attend artists’ talks and propose ideas of their own. Our programme is designed to value creativity regardless of its origins, showing work that explores ideas thematically and includes work from young people, older residents and artists from many different backgrounds.

This first pilot season explores concepts relevant to national and international issues, reflecting current concerns around journeys, migration, identity, memory and loss.
