Let us imagine an artists house.

A house to rehearse ideas. A house to practice in. A house to imagine a different Birmingham. A house as a public artwork. A house as an outpost. A house for a keyworker. A house for production. A social house. A not-for-profit house. A real social house. A house that is a home, not a financial tool. A home for living and working. A home that is a public good.

WHAT IS EASTSIDE PROJECTS Audio Guide

Earlier this month Eastside Projects’ Operation Assistant Emily Hawes led a workshop with Johanna, Tina and Rai from Arts in Crisis , with the intention of making an audio guide to coincide with the launch of Housing Moves. The open conversation was structured round a series of prompts and questions such as ‘What Is Eastside Projects?’ and ‘What Did The Artworks Feel Like?’ and has been edited into a unique ‘tour’, of Eastside Projects and ‘Production Show’.
