Performance Memories Project Partnership
 

Image from the Dennis Wolanski Library collection. Do you know who it is?

In 2017 the Wolanski Foundation formed a partnership with the University of New South Wales Library, University of New South Wales Theatre and Performance Studies, and AusStage to develop the Performance Memories Project.

We are aiming to 

facilitate research on the performing arts

improve access to the Dennis Wolanski Library research files, programs and indexes as a research tool for the university and the wider research community

support the development of the AusStage, the national performing arts gateway and database.

The Dennis Wolanski collection, acknowledged as a body of information of national signifcance, comprises an estimated 4 million pages of information mainly about the performing arts in Australia 1789-1997 in the form of clippings, programs, correspondence, discographies, CVs, invitations, funeral service programs, program notes, publisher blurbs, press releases and card indexes with 85,000 entries.

In 2018, we will be focussing on converting the card indexes to digital form, creating a digital list of all research files and adding selected unindexed programs to the digital lists as we prepare digitisation plans and migration of data and digital objects to discovery platforms.
