Miss High Leg Kick 2018

Festival, Project Space


b‑side works with artists, res­i­dents and com­mu­ni­ties to cre­ate new, site-respon­sive art on the Isle of Port­land and Dorset and beyond.

b-side is an internationally recognised and locally loved arts organisation that both embodies and enriches its place of origin - the Isle of Portland in Dorset.

This island is the beating heart that inspires b-side’s work, but our projects and opportunities extend all over Dorset and beyond.

We work with and commission artists who are as excited by the bigger picture as the smallest detail. Using Portland as a microcosm to explore relationships to and with land, artists create unique and inventive projects inspired by the themes of ‘people’ and ‘place’. We host big discussions on topics that affect us both locally and globally, and create art that exists in unusual and unexpected places.

We produce year round events, projects and the b-side festival, which brings new, unique art to local audiences and visitors alike, sharing incredible stories about and with the Isle of Portland, as well as the rest of the world.

Next Festival 07 -10 September 2023.
