"Artists are explorers...
...so who better to show us the town and the landscape anew? Artists take us into that building that we pass every day and never went into. Artists can show us people in our midst that we might otherwise overlook."
- David Binder, The Arts Festival Revolution, TED Talks

b-side multimedia is an artist-led arts organisation based in Dorset.
We work with and commission artists to make new site-responsive work revealing the marginal, often forgotten and less commercial aspects of our coastal towns and communities. There is a b-side festival every two years in Weymouth and Portland – the next b-side Festival will be September 5th - 14th 2014.
A b-side festival can provide moments of reflection, beauty, surreal interventions and unexpected encounters with art.
Our next Festival in September 2014 will be no exception, take a look at the Festival page to see what our festival artists are working on currently, our new Festival page will be launched soon with full programme details
