Testbed1Housed in an ex-dairy warehouse in Battersea, Testbed1 is a creative, experimental arts "space with no agenda" which launched in spring 2010. Further insight into the project comes with the group's first tweet on their Twitter account, which reads: "Test Bed: implicitly a place for testing. For testing... what exactly? A wisp of a thought, a nugget of an idea, the beginning of a dream." It is overseen by The Committee With No Agenda, which includes architect Will Alsop, artist Bruce McLean, ex-Riverside Studios creative director David Gothard, Kevin Cassandro and writer Mel Gooding, among others. For a look around the space and the latest listings go to www.testbed1.com.
