Map showing Testing Grounds

Welcome to Testing Grounds. Testing Grounds is a free outdoor art space. It is a place for experimentation and testing ideas, for public gatherings and educational opportunities in the heart of Melbourne’s arts and cultural precinct.

Testing Grounds is a place for new works of art and creative ideas to be developed and shared.

Testing Grounds is also an exploration into ways to use vacant or under utilised civic space in order to provide the general public with greater amenity.

Testing Grounds is located at 1 - 23 City Road, Southbank, just behind the Arts Centre.

We are next door to The Australian Ballet Centre and most easily accessed via the City Road stairs from St Kilda Road, just beyond Inge King's sculpture, Forward Surge (the black waves).
