Earthlings Assemble!

Get the newsletter

What if the vast range of life forms we call ‘biodiversity’ gathered to talk about us?


The Earthlings Assembly is a community arts project on Portland UK that culminated at b-side festival 2021.

Co-created by the community of Portland and Wildworks with the support of local arts organisation b-side. This project was commissioned by MEMO as part of Eden Portland with support from Nottingham Trent University

Earthlings Assemble explores the diversity of life on Portland, and calls out to gather an assembly of humans and non-humans that will honour and celebrate the distinctiveness of the place.


On Saturday 11th September Wildworks ran several drop-in community workshops for b-side festival visitors. The participants’ contributions were then edited into a provocative and poetic finale that was projected onto the Bird Observatory lighthouse in the evening.



“I really enjoyed the participatory element of the event, allowing people to be part of the projections was a really nice touch, especially seeing my wife and daughter projected onto the lighthouse.”
