Testing Grounds is a free outdoor space for creative practices encompassing art, performance and design. Programmed through an open application process that supports interdisciplinary practice, experimentation and courage, we are a place where people at all levels can test, develop and share their work.
As well as a year long calendar of free arts entertainment and community events (averaging over 130 a year), we also provide open space in the Arts Precinct for you to walk your dog, eat a picnic lunch, have a meeting, drink a coffee or sit around an open fire.
We receive operational funding from the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
