The Test Tube is a volunteer-run creative, disruptive, innovation project that is evolutionising the idea of 'markets' and what they can offer both the 'stallholders' and the local community through a series of bi-monthly Evo(lutionary) market type events. Providing an incubative and fun space for creatives to grow and connect with local supporters/mentors/investors, and the wider community, and helping to bridge the current void between education completion and the entrepreneurial/creative support often required for success. Offering a range of creative spaces to explore, free workshops for the creatives involved, and a vision of better educating our people on what things like creative and innovative really mean and their vital role in our community.
What to expect on the night:
- networking and connecting with creatives of all kinds
- creative demonstrations
- pop-up fashion show
- food & drink
- and so many more exciting things!
No booking necessary.
We cant wait to see you all there!
