UNESCO listing for AusStage

The federally funded, world-leading digital humanities platform preserving and showcasing the history of Australian live performance has been welcomed to the prestigious UNESCO Memory of the World register.

AusStage, hosted by Flinders University, is now a model being replicated around the world – including the Victoria & Albert Museum-led UKStage and IbsenStage (University of Oslo). The UNESCO Australian Memory of the World program honours documentary heritage of significance in Australia and around the world, and advocates for its preservation.
