Eastside Projects is the main hub for contemporary artists in Birmingham. We spoke to Associate Director Ruth Claxton about setting up and maintaining such an important artist-led project.
Since starting in 2008, Eastside Projects has become the centre of contemporary arts activity in Birmingham. With an impressive history of experimental and critically engaged projects ESP is a key player in the UK contemporary art scene.
We recommend you try to get a hold of one of their User's Manuals. Not only will it tell you everything you need to know about the organisation but it's a fascinating and beautiful publication.
ESP is run by artists and they are are keen to provide opportunities for creative and professional development through their associates scheme, Extra Special People.
