One amazing island

b-side celebrated 10 years in 2018 and our biennial festival returned to Portland in September to showcase the very best in contemporary art, made in response to this beautiful, intriguing and extraordinary island. Over 15,000 visits were made to the b-side this year our biggest Festival yet.
