Eastside Projects makes art public.
We are an artist-run multiverse, commissioning, producing and presenting experimental art practices and demonstrating ways in which art may be useful as part of society.
Eastside Projects provides vital infrastructure, supports best practice and works to expand the role of the artist-run space. Alongside imagining, testing and modeling a free public gallery, we are increasingly engaged in an expanded range of public activities – we devise public art strategies, serve as commissioning agents, produce national public art programmes and create structures to support artists locally, nationally and internationally. We do not make art for the public, we are the public that makes art.
Eastside Projects is an artist-run space as public gallery, a Not for Profit Company Limited by Guarantee Reg: 6402007 and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, in partnership with Birmingham City University. Established in 2008.
