b-side is offering a number of commission opportunities to create new, temporary, site-responsive work in any media for the next festival, September 2020 on the theme of common lands. Proposals can be for any amount up to £4000 - we expect to commission work across a range of contexts, concepts and costs. An additional allowance of up to £750 per commission is available towards travel and accommodation.  

The b-side biennial festival commissions site-responsive work for public spaces on Portland revealing aspects of the island environment and communities and their relationship to elsewhere. The commissions form the core programme of the festival which this year has the theme of its relationship to and with land under the title of Common Lands. They commission work in any media that is thoughtful, maverick, poetic or just simply beautiful.

b-side is committed to minimising our environmental impact. The organisers encourage artists to consider the carbon footprint related to the production, materials, installation and any activities as part of their project proposals, including to re-purpose or recycle all materials from installations and performances.

Applications are invited from artists at any career stage and working in any media including: visual art, digital, sound, film, text based work, live and performance art, social media and socially engaged practice.

Deadline for applications is midnight Sunday 23 June 2019.
