Q.

How do I apply to use Testing Grounds? Whats the process?

A.

Because Testing Grounds is an interdisciplinary art space first and foremost, the application process involves some negotiation between the hirer, Testing Grounds, and Right Angle Events.

The contact for site availability questions is Testing Grounds, and for available packages and costings is Right Angle Events. Once you’ve found a date and a package that work,  fill out a Commercial Hire Application Form.

After your application has been approved, Right Angle Events will be your primary contact as they will be responsible for planning and delivering your event.

 

Q.

I have some questions before I apply.

A.

The answer may be in these FAQs but if you cannot find it here you can email trent@theprojects.com.au. You can always visit us on site as well.

Q.

What spaces are available?

A.

There are a range of spaces available suiting different scales and types of events. We strongly encourage you to come down and have a look before submitting an application.  You can also view the site via the 360 walk through

Q.

Can I have exclusive use of the site?

A.

As a commercial hire you will generally have exclusive use of the site, in the sense of being closed to the general public. Depending on what else is programmed at the time, some parts of the site may be closed for artist use.

Q.

Is the site licensed?

A.

Yes.

Q.

Can I bring alcohol on site?

A.

No. Please keep in mind that proceeds from the bar support the residency program – it’s ethical drinking!

Q.

Do you have food or catering?

A.

Right Angle Events can take care of any catering needs you have. Drop them an email at events@rightangleevents.com.au to discuss options. 

Q.

Do you have power?

We have 240 volt power and three phase if required.

Q.

How much power can I draw?

A.

Generally we have 10amp 240v supply.

Yes, but anything that you need in terms of AV gear, lighting, or any other technical requirements can be organised through Right Angle Events (and will come tested and tagged!). 

Q.

A.

Yes.

Q.

Amenities?

A.

We have unisex and flat access toilets on site.

Q.

Can I bring my car on site?

A.

For bumping in and out, sure. Otherwise there is a car park next door. If you can please let us know prior to arriving so we can make sure the site is clear.

Q.

What lighting do you have on site?

A.

Each space comes with ceiling lights and we have some other simple lights available. Any lighting requirements beyond a simple evening wash of the space can be organised as part of your hire fee through Right Angle Events

Q.

Is there a limit on light pollution?

A.

We have a number of residential towers close to Testing Grounds and we are respectful of our neighbours, so we try and keep light spill to a minimum.

Q.

Am I able to store objects on site?

A.

We have drop-off points for short storage while events are being installed/deinstalled. Generally if you want to store items for the duration of the event you should find space within the specific space provided to you.

Q.

Can we advertise ourselves?

A.

You most certainly can – this is your event and you are in charge.

Q.

What happens if it rains?

A.

It rains! (But surprisingly it doesn’t actually rain that often) There are some indoor spaces but generally we are an outdoor space so its always good to have a contingency plan up your sleeve. Unfortunately site hire fees are non-refundable in case of inclement weather. 

Q.

Is there security provided?

A.

Security – if needed for the size of the event – will come as part of your hire package through Right Angle Events. 

Q.

Am I able to record video or sound and take photographs?

Sure thing!

Yes. But please be careful!
