Testing Grounds is back

12 Nov 2015

Testing Grounds is back Image

Following its winter hibernation, Southbank’s community arts space Testing Grounds reopened its gates to the public last month.

The community-programmed public space on City Rd, funded by Creative Victoria, was closed by the site’s creative duo Joseph Norster and Millie Cattlin in order to revamp the space in preparation for summer.

Student musicians from the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) Secondary School helped to kick start celebrations with live music on Friday, October 30, while Farshans on The Field saw punters supporting alternative fashion and culture on Saturday, October 31.

With many more exciting events already booked for the coming months, the site will be open to the public Wednesdays to Sundays from 10am until 6pm.

Mr Norster said expressions of interest for arts experimentation were now available via a refreshed website.

“We also have updated opening hours, a new calendar and sneak peaks at our proposed 2016 infrastructure upgrade, which has been keeping us very busy over winter,” he said.

“We look forward to seeing many of you about site in the coming days, weeks and months!”
