b-side is an arts organisation - we work with artists, residents and other organisations to make artworks in response to place: often drawing upon the history, architecture and geography of a particular site or working with communities as source of inspiration and research.

We offer a range of ways to engage with our programme – including  events, projects,  artist bursaries, artist commissions and residencies and work with young people.

There is a b-side festival every two years in Weymouth and Portland and continuous developmental work in between, particularly with young people through our ‘b-side encounters’ programme. Always on the lookout for new ways of exploring the less commercial aspects of the seaside we are open to ideas from collaborative or participatory artists as well as individuals who want to create site responsive work.

b-side is funded by Arts Council England and is currently the only arts organisation in Weymouth and Portland with Arts Council National Portfolio status.
