The Testing Grounds Commercial Hire Levy is used to directly funds creative programming of the site, including workshops and special art events (e.g. Art Parties) and as such provides valuable support directly to artists.
There is a scale of fees for the use of the site depending on the spaces required. Because the site is an interdisciplinary artist space, depending on programming, site hire may also include a fee to the artist for inclusion of their work.
1.1 Superstructure Booking
Our standard commercial hire offering, the Superstructure Booking offers use of the outside space in conjunction with the Open Box, great for a larger celebration or networking event (up to 400 pax).
1.2 Box Booking
This provides you will use of one of the Studio or Gallery spaces for up to 12 hours during our standard hours of operation. Perfect for a training or information day, small networking event or product launch.
Box Booking can be added to Superstructure Booking to increase the event capacity and provide a diversity of spaces for use, but is subject at all times to availability based on the artistic program.
1.3 Custom Curation Services
Testing Grounds aims to support artists by providing a custom visual art and performance curation service for commercial events on site. For more information and cost please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
