Temperance Hall

Virtual Exhibition Tour

Explore the Phillip Adams BalletLab Wunderkammer – a digital 360° exhibition of strange and beautiful costumes, set design pieces and art objects created over BalletLab’s 20-year history, set in the Temperance Hall studio.

Viewers will enjoy an unprecedented insight into the artistic process of one of Australia’s boldest dance and cross-disciplinary artists and his collaborators, as Phillip unpicks the webs of inspiration drawn from queer culture, pop culture, fine art, fashion and other disciplines that informed these objects’ creation.

Melbourne Camera Club

The former Freemason’s Hall is a prominent classically detailed corner building of two storeys, presenting finished facades of the Corinthian order of architecture to both Dorcas and Ferrars Streets.

Join Melbourne Camera Club members, Jane Barnes and Peter Walton in an interview talk about how they captured ‘Rainbow Street’ for the ‘Shot in the City of Port Phillip Exhibition’.


A Community Lost and Found

Explore the distinct social history of the Montague area of the former City of South Melbourne during its most populated period between the two world wars with an online exhibition and virtual guided tour.

Australian Tapestry Workshop

The Australian Tapestry Workshop occupies a National Trust and heritage-listed building in South Melbourne and is the only workshop of its kind operating in Australia.

Due to the renewed lockdown restrictions, Open House Melbourne, MPavilion and Melbourne Music Week will be postponing the announced MERGE performances originally scheduled for Saturday 25th July until the end of August. All artists involved will remain engaged in the project which we look forward to immensely once we are able to recommence. The rescheduled performance date will be announced in early August.

MacKillop Family Services

The white stucco Italianate-style building on South Melbourne’s Cecil Street was Victoria’s first purpose built Catholic orphanage and today is one of the oldest remaining orphanage buildings in Australia.

This year’s tour is hosted on an interactive map. The map depicts
the ground floor of the building. The upstairs mostly hosted the dormitories where the young boys slept. Today the space is used as workspaces, offices and meeting rooms.

Tune in for a live Q&A with former residents on Saturday 25 + Sunday 26 at 11am.
