Inclusion is at the heart of b-side. The magic of outdoor art is that it takes over our public spaces, and transforms the familiar into something new.

b-side is on a journey to consider access at the inception of each event, to discover the creative potential of accessible practice, and find new ways to reach, work with, and offer opportunities to everyone.

We try to make our events as accessible as we can. For Festival 2023 we will have an Easy Read Festival Guide, plus free Trishaw rides, and wheelchair-accessible bus tours to some Festival sites – we will be launching our brand new ‘Access To Nature’ Guide soon.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your access needs, we will do all we can to help and please feel free to give us feedback so we can improve access.

Access Guide

The artworks have been installed in places across the island, you can access these places by walking, wheeling, cycling, going on a public bus or driving.

Get Involved

Opportunities for everyone

b-side works and collaborates with a diverse range of people and organisations. We offer artists, researchers, residents and visitors the opportunity to get involved in our work by responding and contributing to our programme. We do this through bursaries, commissions, residencies, artists’ CPD and work with young people, as well as local events, projects and collaboration.
