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. 

All funds raised will directly support BalletLab and Temperance Hall artists programs:
  • Phillip Adams new project Triptych: Exploring a divine intervention of queer crucifixions inverted across three platforms of movement and visual anatomy: inspired by Francis Bacon Triptych paintings (1944 –1986) 
  • Temperance Hall artist-led workshop program curated by Artistic Associate Luke George, designed to offer professional development and community-building opportunities for independent Melbourne dance artists
  • A new partnership project titled Portrait with our neighbours at CaspaCare aged care facility in South Melbourne. This intimate project draws residents of CaspaCare into a creative dialogue to document their story and experiences of isolation during COVID-19 lockdowns.
