The Other Side Gallery

contributes to the growing movement of Contemporary Outsider Art.

We celebrate the sheer power and uniqueness of artists' work and the way it challenges negative public misperceptions and stereotypes.

We aim to facilitate social change by creating opportunities for access and inclusion in the arts.

The Gallery is managed by representatives from its membership: people who have experienced some form of social disadvantage in one way or other, whether through mental or physical health needs, learning difficulties, homelessness or substance mis-use.

The Gallery's members are drawn from a number of associated organisations across the UK.

New TOSG consultant

I am working one day each week for the gallery until the end of March 2014.

I am an artist, event producer and curator – currently I am co-curating an arts and mental health festival for The Mental Health Foundation.

It is an honour to be taking part with the community of The Other Side Gallery artists, steering  committee and Board to create a fitting celebration of the 10th anniversary of the gallery.

This is due to take place in March 2014 – watch out for more news.

You can expect to see me in The Creativity Centre in the coming weeks – do come and say hello.

I want to hear what you have to say about your experience of the gallery and ideas for the future.

I am attending my first board meeting Monday 4th November 2013 and look forward to meeting Chris and the board members + members of the gallery steering committee.
