Donate to Phillip Adams BalletLab and Temperance Hall and go into the draw to win some marvellous prizes!

This year we’ve banded together with generous sponsors, to pull out all the stops, thanking you  for your donation to our End of Financial Year Appeal.

As BalletLab and Temperance Hall emerge from last year's challenges, we remain steadfast in our continued efforts to provide curatorial dialogues, presenting platforms, artist-led opportunities, and a welcoming space for LGBTQIA+ artists and community to reconnect and create.

We are reaching out to our community of supporters to help us to reinvigorate Temperance Hall with the presence of art and artists who are chomping at the bit to resume their creative practice and collaborations.
