Join EOP








EOP is Eastside Projects’ artist development scheme.

EOP supports artists, curators and writers to develop work, ideas, careers and community through a responsive programme of events, opportunities and projects. Eastside Projects and EOP members work together to collectively imagine a dynamic programme of activity for artists, artist-writers and artist-curators at all stages of their careers. Join and become part of a practice-led network and benefit from Eastside Projects’ regional, national and international contacts and extensive knowledge, networks and experience.


EOP is an active programme – the more you put in, the more you will get out.

By joining EOP you become part of the community that supports and is supported by, Eastside Projects. As well as free entry to talks and events, you can attend our members-only programme of toolkits, crits, workshops, wellbeing sessions and Away Days. You can also apply for opportunities like the annual member’s exhibition, residencies, The Exchange, and Summer Camp. You can also book in for 1-2-1 chats with Eastside Projects staff.

In addition, you will receive a weblink from our website to yours and a 10% discount on all magazines, publications and editions. 


EOP membership is open to all and costs £60 per year (£5 per month by standing order).

Membership is free if you are a Black person, an Asian person or from a Global Majority background, or if you are a Disabled or D/deaf person. If this is you and you would like to join, please drop an email to sign up.
