THTDB is a female focused arts and community collective that works in 3 streams.

TOY CHOIR: a culturally diverse cross age choir of girls aged 10-18 who write their own compositions.
PRODUCTION: (a cross age ensemble of 16 aged 12-45 year old women who create one major, and one minor work each year, last year selling out an independent 2 week season)
AKIN: a national project aim at girls aged 10-18, 1 day workshops across the country for 30 participants identified by their local community.

We have had an incredibly successful first year and to keep the momentum going we have identified needing a General Manager with strategic planning and strong producing skills to generate and implement the company’s growing repertoire and artistic aspirations.
We are looking to fund this part time role for 12 months.

The House that Dan Built is committed to creating a platform for Australian female voices. We activate spaces where women artists and girls with passion create work responding to female narratives across the generations, cultures and regions of the Australian landscape.
We bring women and girls together to build on provocations drawn from the community in the form of interviews, personal histories, observations, images and sound recordings; addressing struggle without anger and counteracting the darkest aspects of female experience with the shared delight of impromptu community engagement.

We produce outcomes on every scale: instagram post, hand-held projection, one-to-one performance, flash mob or installation while substantial stories with big impacts are shared in large-audience venues. By sharing skills and experiences we seek to address feelings of separateness between rural and city women and tell an integrated story of Australian women with diverse voices.

We provide peer-to-peer mentorship to newer participants allowing skills to be widely disseminated with limited resources. THTDB’s Toy Choir opened Mardi Gras 2016,, played in the 2017 Sydney Festival and regularly engage across generations composing songs with patients in nursing homes and children’s hospitals. Recent production, Tender Young Creatures, addressing the fear women and girls are given of night, played a sold-out two-week season!

$35,748 will cover a mid level GM for two days a week for 12 months.

Objectives for the year:
1)Solidify and lock in: Internal Processes, Contracting and Insurances.
2) Create comprehensive spreadsheet to identify government and community grants. Apply for applicable opportunities. Work with AD and Board to find aligning sponsorship opportunities. Create press and sponsorship packages tailored to specific sponsors and philanthropic opportunities.
3) Along with AD create a strategic plan for 2018-20.
For every $330 over $35,748, a scholarship position for a deserving girl to participate in either the Toy Choir or 3 Akin positions will be paid for.

The House That Dan Built is comprised of young people and professionals showcasing exciting projects of all sizes.

A not for profit arts company, we create tiny productions for modest audiences and main stage productions for full houses. The house is passionate in believing that sharing stories brings communities together. The richness of new work written and performed by young people is not diminished by the size of production or audience.

We are innovative. We use new technologies such as recording, uploading and presenting productions from a smartphone projector, so they can be shared with an audience of 5 or 5000.
