Eastside Projects makes art public.

We are an internationally renowned centre of excellence based in a free public gallery imagined and organized by artists, in partnership with Birmingham City University. We commission, produce and present experimental art practices and demonstrate ways in which art may be useful as part of society. Our influential Extra Special People programme develops regional talent positioned in a hyper-local and super-international context. Eastside Projects provides vital infrastructure and supports best practice by establishing and exercising new models for artists and curators to research, produce and thrive.

We believe in working collaboratively towards change and do so to support the cultural growth of Birmingham. We do not make art for the public. We are the public that makes art. The artist run space is not a stop-gap. The artist run space is a public good.

For in depth information on what the organisation is made of, how it was set up, who it is for, how it can be used and what it can offer see the various drafts of the User's Manuals.

Eastside Projects is an artist-run space as public gallery, not for profit company Limited by guarantee reg: 6402007, an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, in partnership with Birmingham City University, with further support from the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursary program.
