ESP is Eastside Projects’ Associates scheme. ESP works with artists, designers, curators and writers to support the development of work, ideas, connections and careers through a programme of events, opportunities and projects. Members become active contributors to a practice-led peer support network and benefit from Eastside Projects’ experience of the contemporary art world and regional, national and international contacts.
Established in 2008 at the same time as the gallery, ESP is one of the UK’s leading artists’ support and talent development programmes.
ESP is currently supported by Arts Council England and Birmingham City University.
ESP has previously been generously supported by:
Jerwood Charitable Foundation
