Testing Grounds is free for creative practitioners, curators, lecturers, teachers or community service workers who work in a creative capacity and wish to create an education or discursive project.
Education and discursive projects could take on any number of forms such as workshops, forums, talks, panels and discussion groups or reading groups. Testing Grounds provides an unstipulated program structure and space which allows for education and discursive projects to occur year round.
Experimental projects may be extremely short or long, miniature or immense. They can occur across the site within all spaces and are programmed around the exhibitions and performances program structure.
A project could also be suited to being programmed as an exhibition or performance or as a part of one.
Testing Grounds offers three standard workshops through ArtsConnect9 but may also provide these workshops to people who may not be eligible for ArtsConnect9.
