  • Brief Description

    b-side is inviting expressions of interest from an artist/collaboration working in any medium for a commission to create artwork in response to the last area of unquarried land on the Isle of Portland, Dorset as part of a Heritage Lottery funded project called This Land. This is a two year project exploring and celebrating the unique natural and built heritage of the isle and responds directly to community concerns about their environment. Exploring land use and access, land and property rights, biodiversity and climate change, the project aims to raise awareness, gather and share knowledge, and upskill and empower the community to protect and enhance their environment. The two sites are the remains of a Tudor cottage in Brandy Row on the seafront at Chiswell and the last remaining area of unquarried/agricultural landscape at Portland Bill.

    Fee: £4,000 plus travel & accommodation allowance
    Materials: additional budget of up to £2000 for materials and equipment
