Join the Temperance Hall Society in 2017

BalletLab Other Causes...

BalletLab has listed 1 other cause:

Temperance Hall is fast becoming Melbourne's newest home for the most innovative and experimental contemporary art and performance work. Since opening the doors in November 2016 we have

  • Presented two seasons of contemporary performance work featuring local and international artists collectively hosting over 600 audience members. 
  • Delivered a soft launch, fundraising event for 100 guests raising over $20,000.
  • Hosted three work-in-progress showings featuring a number of locally based artists to a viewership exceeding 100.
  • Seeded relationships for future partnerships with neighbouring organisations CaSPACare Emerald Hill, Multicultural Arts Victoria, Theatre Network Australia and the Australian National Academy of Music.
  • Supported a number of locally based artists offering in-kind venue hire totaling 90 hours (valued at approx. $1500).  
  • Hosted the Ausdance Victoria Workshop and Master Class Program as part of Australia's leading contemporary dance festival, Dance Massive.
  • Hired the hall to a number of independent artists and small to medium arts organisations honouring our mission to offer low cost and affordable hire for local artists and organisations.

Over the next year, we will expand on this foundation period to deliver a diverse and accessible program to the dance, arts and wider community providing broader sector support through the development and presentation of new Australian works, annual workshop and research programs, exhibitions, residencies, commissions, resource sharing and hires.

This end of financial year, we ask you to help us deliver our ambitious vision for Temperance Hall and help us to reach the full potential this of incredible opportunity.

We want to seal your name in gold lettering on our honour board in the grand entrance foyer of the Hall to claim your place in building the foundations for artists to come. By joining the Temperance Hall Society this financial year you will directly support upcoming projects 

  • EVER - A new dance and live music work in partnership with Melbourne Chamber Orchestra. EVER will premiere in October at Temperance Hall.
  • Séance - New dance/opera work (currently in development) featuring a cast of Australia's most esteemed mature dance artists, composer Daniel Jenatsch and Artist Julia DeVille.
  • Our numerous programs that support independent artists to make and present work here at Temperance Hall including our upcoming Emerging Choreographers Commission and International Artists-in-Residence Program.

In addition, our most treasured Temperance Hall still requires significant cosmetic and infrastructure upgrades including

  • Heating and cooling systems.
  • Further access requirements (the second floor remains inaccessible).
  • A high quality sound system and audio audit.
  • Structurally sound seating and adequate flooring for performance.
  • A significant makeover of the Main Hall stripping the years of heavy black paint to reveal the majestic original concrete render.

We would love you to join the Temperance Hall Society in these most critical foundation years.
