Since 2019 Testing Grounds has produced City of Melbourne’s public art program Test Sites. The program provides opportunities for artists to explore and experiment with creative ideas in the public realm.
Test Sites Online has been developed in collaboration with Testing Grounds in direct response to the difficult circumstances resulting from the spread of COVID-19. Our newly refreshed creative development program offers support to artists during this time of significant upheaval.
Test Sites Online will:
- Challenge and interrogate artists’ understanding of the public and the built environment;
- Provide resources for navigating councils and the logistics of creating work in the public realm;
- Generate future ideas for temporary and permanent public artworks.
