Eastside Projects


ESP Members Only

Deadline: 3 June 2018

1 March – 27 April 2019

Deadline: Sunday 3 June

We are delighted to invite ESP members to apply to make an exhibition for Eastside Projects’ newly re-designed second gallery.

This is a significant opportunity for an ESP member to make a solo show or project, which will be presented as part of our core artistic programme during our tenth anniversary year. We are looking for exciting, ambitious proposals and are particularly interested in supporting members to make a significant change in their practice by developing new work or realising ideas or projects which would not otherwise be possible.

The selected artist will receive a £1,000 artists fee and up to £1,000 for production. Eastside Projects will cover other costs related to making the exhibition including travel, accommodation, transport, installation and documentation. In addition you will benefit from:

  • Curatorial support and mentoring, including studio visits with Gavin Wade and other members of the Eastside Projects team.
  • The opportunity to develop a related public event to support your show.


  • You must be a current ESP member to apply. To join please visit our membership page.
  • If you work collaboratively – as part of a duo or group – you can apply, but the fee and budget will have to be shared.


Sunday 3 June: Closing date for applications
w/c 18 June: Shortlisted artists will be invited to discuss their proposal with us in person, or over Skype.
w/c 2 July: Selected artist will be announced.
1 March – 27 April 2019: Exhibition at Eastside Projects.
