Opportunities at b-side

Portland Pathways

b-side has been awarded Heritage Lottery funding for a project exploring the historic origins of footpaths on the Isle of Portland, Dorset and their relationship to the landscapes and sites they connect.

For this project we would like to commission an artist to respond to information gathered by the community research team to create work in any media that animates footpaths and informs and engages visitors to Portland over the 9 day period of the b-side festival in September 2018.

We are also looking to appoint a Freelance Research Coordinator.
