Summer Camp 2015

27 July to 7 August 2015

Summer Camp
July 27–7 August

Summer Camp is approaching and this year is bigger and better than ever with plenty of opportunities to get involved. It’s a great chance to use Eastside Projects to meet old and new friends, test ideas and projects and get feedback from Eastside Projects staff and, most importantly, other members. Don’t miss this chance to be an active part of the ESP community, come and show us what you do.

From July 27 the four members who received Summer Camp Bursaries – Ben Harding, Lucy Hutchinson, Kate V Robertson and Lesley Whitehead – will be in the gallery developing new work and ideas.

During the second week, from August 3 –8, the doors of Eastside Projects will be open and all ESP members are invited to use the main gallery space from 10am-5pm to make and share work. This is not a formal exhibition, instead we hope to offer space to test new ideas and develop new work, conversations and collaborations. Everyone is welcome, but please book yourself in by emailing

Summer Camp culminates in a public ‘Open Studio’ event on 7 August, 6–9pm, for Digbeth First Friday, when we will also screen the Film Open programme, but across the fortnight we have planned a series of special events for you:
