HM Prison The Verne

Symposium - Resonant Terrains

HM Prison The Verne
The Verne

Festivals and Sites - platform for arts practice

b-side invites you to join us on the rugged and inspiring Isle of Portland for two days of creative intervention and energetic dialogue within the vicinity and walls of HM Prison The Verne, a citadel dating from 1847 that dominates the island’s landscape and contributes to the beguiling atmosphere of this beautiful Dorset isle.

Symposium - Resonant Terrains

We are asking the question:

‘If festivals are the new platform, and sites the new venues, what can they offer and what can’t they offer artists, curators and audiences?’

Bringing together artists, curators, producers and other cultural professionals to discuss some pertinent questions about site-based practice and the role of festivals in the changing landscape of arts provision, ‘Resonant Terrains’ will host sonic, sociable and subterranean walks, talks, performance lectures and discussion.

Tickets: £60 (includes both days, artist led activities, refreshments and meals)
