b-side festival 2022

It’s great to be back! b‑side makes a wel­come return this year with some won­der­ful artis­tic tal­ent to cel­e­brate, explore and engage with.

08/09/22 – 13/09/22
This year is an action-packed part two of our postponed 2020 festival. Covid – its impact on our health and happiness – is still throwing us challenges. In return, we are increasingly convinced that coming outside together on this magical island to celebrate culture is critical.

b-side festival 2022 deepens our investigation into Common Lands. Through new artworks created by artists from across the Isle of Portland and around the world – Austria, Greece, Kenya, Pakistan and Zimbabwe, to name a few – we are throwing into question migratory, queer and environmental relationships to land, both on our island and around our precious planet.

All-importantly, this year's festival offers a celebration and appreciation of the Isle of Portland: all the many forms of bio and human diversity that both visit and inhabit this magical place.
