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.

We would like the work to incorporate walks and talks in some form and to link to an associated map based guide to the footpaths. The artist/s would be welcome to join the research team and contribute to, collaborate on or incorporate the production of the map as part of their work. NB A separate budget covers design and print for the map.
Fee: £2000 to include artist fee and all costs including materials, production, installation and de-installation of work. [plus separate budget for design and print of map if applicable]
Expenses: An additional allowance of up to £760 is available for travel and accommodation.
Dates: Research and development - anytime from March/April onwards. Final work to be presented as part of the 2018 b-side festival from Saturday 8 – Sunday 16 September 2018.
