Eastside Projects makes art public. We are based in a free public gallery in the centre of Birmingham which is being imagined and organized by artists. Eastside Projects provides vital infrastructure and supports best practice by exercising new models for artists and curators to research, produce and thrive.
Extra Ordinary People (formerly known as Extra Special People) is Eastside Projects’ Associate membership scheme. EOP works with artists, curators and art-writers to support the development of work, ideas, connections and careers through a programme of events, opportunities and projects.
As would be necessary for operating a machine or learning a subject, a manual may be helpful when encountering Eastside Projects for the first time. Our User’s Manuals explain what the space is made of, how it was set up, who it is for, how it can be used and what it can offer.
