AusStage provides an accessible online resource for researching live performance in Australia. Development is led by a consortium of universities, government agencies, industry organisations and collecting institutions with funding from the Australian Research Council.


AusStage enables research on live performance as a wealth-producing creative industry, a generator of social capital and an indicator of the nation's cultural vitality. Australia stages some of the most ambitious, innovative and socially significant live events. Live interaction at communal events is essential to the cultural life of the nation. Innovative live performances project images of Australian culture to audiences here and overseas.


AusStage is committed to collecting and sharing information about Australian live performance as an ongoing, open-access and collaborative endeavour. Our project office and server infrastructure are housed at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia. Our users come from across Australia and around the world. By sharing our knowledge through AusStage, we can learn more about Australian performance than ever before.
