"Tremendous events and wonderful to see Portland differently and indeed spend some time there."
"I really enjoyed my b-side day out, this was my first proper year of going to several b-side events and I was very pleasantly surprised!"
"I enjoyed the intimacy of the events... as an antidote to the large scale arts festivals I really enjoyed the smaller scale 'encounters' that were just magical, particularly in the wonderful landscape of Portland."
“To take part in what seems to have been an overwhelmingly well-received festival and commissioning process is obviously a good thing for any artist.”
- Alistair Gentry, b-side artist
"Interesting and thought provoking. Great to meet and hear the artist explanations too. Shame it's at an end."
“I enjoyed how varied the work was, bringing together sound installations, photography, live art, literature, exhibition was very well orchestrated. It did not look accidental, there was conversation between the pieces.”
- Ania Bas, b-side artist
"Really impressed. Great idea and superbly executed. Love the way you have presented it. Fantastic work."
“A very beautiful piece which provided a peaceful experience in turbulent times.”
