Eastside Projects

Eastside Projects

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.
