About event

Yo City is supported by Testing Grounds and is a part of our larger programmed event, Testing Nights. Testing Nights occurs on the last Thursday of each month. It is a free creative event, where creative practitioners can test work-in-development across the outdoor site, for one night only, and receive feedback from live public audiences.

Yo CiTY will curate an exclusive musical experience on stage featuring Hayku KyahIjaleBrotha AsantiMaya Vice, Phoebe ElsworthCool Out SunVerse@ille and more!

Why do we do this?

  • This is about ‘feel’ good vibes.
  • We advocate for diversity
  • We want to support local creative artists and their passion.
  • Sharing their stories to create awareness and include their voices within multicultural Australia.
  • Creating/fostering spaces to showcase/celebrate creatives that are usually missed in the mainstream space.

Testing Grounds is wheelchair accessible. This is a children and dog friendly event.

Testing Grounds acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which this project is situated. We respect and thank the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation on whose unneeded land we live and work.
