b-side is offering a number of commission opportunities to create new, temporary, site-responsive work in any media for the next festival, 8 - 16 September 2018. 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 £760 per commission is available towards travel and accommodation.

ABOUT
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.

Located just off the coast of Dorset and approached via a narrow causeway, this curious island has a very particular history and ecology offering huge scope for research and inspiration. We are looking for ideas that respond to and reveal all aspects of the island, which may include its geology, ecology, archaeology, heritage and its geographic relationships locally and internationally.

The festival takes place over a nine-day period with installations and events at a number of locations across the island. This year we are encouraging visitors to explore by foot using public rights of way and public transport where possible and are seeking proposals in response to a number of specific sites (listed in the full downloadable brief below). We also welcome proposals for locations nearby or on route to these locations or proposals about the footpaths themselves.

PROPOSALS
Proposals for artworks and interventions should be site-responsive and temporary, exploring the fabric, history or contemporary use of the place and aim to intrigue and engage audiences. Work can be for indoor or outdoor contexts, intimate or large scale, static, mobile, durational or event based.

Proposals should be for new work but may be part of a larger or on-going project.

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

HOW TO APPLY
Applications must be made online via Curatorspace applications portal: www.curatorspace.com/opportunities/detail/open-call-for-bside-festival/1637

Your proposal may be submitted EITHER in writing using the online form OR as a video recording uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo. The link for this must be part of your application.
