Off Site Project is an online curatorial platform founded by Pita Arreola-Burns and Elliott Burns in 2017. Via homepage exhibitions, downloadable ZIP shows, and a residency situated in Google Maps, it supports emerging new media artists and addresses pressing techno-sociological topics.

Through partnerships, Off Site Project has created exhibitions and projects for anonymous gallery, the Austrian Cultural Forum London,, Electric Artefacts, INDUSTRA, isthisit?, and the Summer Works Festival. On the subject of online art ecosystems, they have been invited to speak at Central Saints Martins, Centro de Cultura Digital, the CSNI, the DRHA conference, Goldsmiths, Modern Art Oxford, the RCA, Somerset House Studios, Tate Exchange, the UCL Multimedia Anthropology Lab, the University of Denver, and the Whitworth Gallery.

Previously, she has held positions with Furtherfield Gallery and had a career in cultural PR and communications.
