Kaleidoscope Network


The Kaleidoscope Network is a collaboration between Eastside Projects (Birmingham), Primary (Nottingham), Spike Island (Bristol) and The NewBridge Project (Newcastle).

Formed in response to a need for mutual support, the network has come together as a way to share resources, increase what each partner is able to offer and create new connections between communities of artists. It also offers professional development for the associated partners learning from one another. 

We are beginning the relationship with a rolling programme of monthly Kaleidoscope events that will give artists in our networks access to a range of activity offered by the different partners, enriching our individual programmes and bringing new perspectives and insights from neighbouring networks.

If you have a membership with any of the organisations involved, that automatically makes you part of the Kaleidoscope Network. This means you can attend selected events programmed by each partner. These events will be identified as Kaleidoscope activities on our websites and advertised as usual on our newsletters and social media, so keep your eyes peeled for details and booking.


Eastside Projects makes art public. Based in Birmingham, they are an artist-run multiverse, commissioning, producing and presenting experimental art practices and demonstrating ways in which art may be useful as part of society. Extra Ordinary People is Eastside Projects’ Associate membership scheme. EOP works with artists, curators and art-writers to support the development of work, ideas, connections and careers through a programme of events, opportunities and projects.

Primary is an artist-led contemporary visual arts organisation in Nottingham. They prioritise artistic research, provide studios and residencies to artists, and run a free public programme of exhibitions and events. Primary has launched a membership scheme to support more artists, makers and practitioners who are interested in joining and contributing to their creative community and benefitting from their dynamic artist development programme.

Spike Island is a dynamic arts centre that supports, produces and presents contemporary art and culture. A short walk from Bristol city centre. Spike Island Associates is a dynamic network of artists, curators, designers, writers and thinkers at all stages of their career. Members span multiple disciplines and share a common interest in collaboration, experimentation and a desire to learn new skills and have new experiences.


Kaleidoscope events will be announced in our Programme section. See our Become a Member page for details of how to join The NewBridge Project.
