Projects

b-side has a wide range of projects that run across days, weeks and even years.


b-side is not just a festival, we commission a whole range of art, research, events and activities throughout the year – take a look below.

b-side is currently running Common Lands, the over-arching theme for our programme of work over the coming years. In 2022-2023 Common Lands focuses on This Land – a project exploring and celebrating the unique natural and built heritage of the Isle of Portland.
