Testing Grounds - Market Square

Testing Grounds is a free outdoor space for creative practices encompassing art, performance and design, available for creative, cultural and education-related activities.

Curated through an open application process that encourages interdisciplinary practice, experimentation and calculated risk, Testing Grounds is a place where people at all levels can test, develop and share their work.

Testing Grounds will curate a multi-disciplinary program of visual art, new media art, live-art, dance and performance projects that are site-responsive, take calculated risk and are experimental in their form.
