b-side will return to the Isle of Portland this September, showcasing the very best in contemporary art made in response to this beautiful and intriguing island. Extraordinary, playful, witty and challenging our programme emerges from conversations between artists, producers and the residents of Portland.

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.
A b-side festival can provide moments of reflection, beauty, surreal interventions and unexpected encounters with art.
Our last Festival was in September 2016, take a look at the 2016 archive to see the breadth of work we produce.
