    Island Friends

    Become an Island Friend

    Join a group of dedicated stewards and hosts, participants, venue-owners and artists who help to develop b-side’s work each year.

    The group offers feedback on b-side’s activities, undertakes fundraising campaigns, builds connections between communities and artists, and gives input on future projects. Sound like something you would like to be part of?

    Take a look at this lovely little film about the Friends of b-side group below, commissioned by The Arts Development Company.
