Testing Grounds teams up with the Rose Street Market to bring you two night markets during summer 2019.
A different take on the night market idea, they're pushing the limits of what to expect - think 1980s high school science fair meets classic country show, meets contemporary art fair, all packed into a craft market and turned up to maximum frequency.
There'll be market stalls by local artisans, good music by awesome Melbourne-based DJs, delicious hot and cold food and top-notch drinks, as well as a huge array of fun activities facilitated by contemporary artists.
Learn to play your favourite pop song on the drums, sample squid ink cocktails, get body-scanned and uploaded into a virtual world, play a trumpet made out of ice and turn an old television in to an oscilloscope - and that's just the tip of the iceberg!
Curated by Arie Rain Glorie, with program partners Experimenta and Freeplay.
