Melbourne newCardigan cardiParty

Recorded Live

The first cardiParty of 2020 has set the bar high with a massive tour of the Arts Centre Melbourne, inclusive of the Archive Store which host the Australian Performing Arts Collection, the Australian Music Vault Exhibition, as well as it’s Research Centre.

It took 5 tour guides, the careful navigation evening performance attendees, hidden rooms, leather jackets and one very enthusiastic coffee grinder to make this podcast!

Many thanks to Alison Wishart (Head of the Arts Centre curatorial team), Margaret Marshall (Curator of Theatre and Popular Entertainment), Ian Jackson (Assistant Curator of Theatre and Popular Entertainment), Olivia Jackson (Curator of the Australian Music Vault) and Claudia Funder (Coordinator of Research Services) for being amazing tour guides. They will be a hard act to follow!

cardiCast episode 69 – National Herbarium of Victoria

Melbourne GLAM Tour

Recorded Live

This cardiCast (the last for 2019!) is something a little bit special. Word on the street is that getting into the Herbarium for a tour is pretty hard, but our friends at ALIA Vic allowed some of our cardiCore along to do a little recording and spread the love (and, my word, they was a lot of love to around).

Many thanks to Pina Milne (Collection Manager) and Sally Stewart (Librarian) for hosting the tour, as well as answer the steady stream of GLAM questions.
If you want to find out about all things herbaceous, then this is the cardiCast for you!

cardiCast episode 67 – Sale Water Tower

Melbourne newCardigan cardiParty

Recorded Live

Our November Melbourne cardiParty was a wonderful day trip to Sale, with a trip to the historical Sale Water Tower (designed by John Grainger), lunch at an impeccably restored pub called the Criterion (built circa 1865) and finally a river cruise to check out the swing bridge (also designed by Grainger).

Did we capture all of this in audio form? No- you kind of had to be there.
But we did get the wonderful tour and talk, courtesy of Sale Historical Society member Michelle Page-Cook and local Historian Peter Synan OAM. How a township got is water has never been so interesting!

cardiCast episode 66 – The Presidential Debrief

Melbourne newCardigan Interview

We asked you to ask our ex President, Justine Hanna, some questions about what her life in Libraries and GLAM network is like and what her plans are for the future. We thought it fitting that our current President, Clare Presser, asks or former President these cutting questions.

What they actually did was bang on about cats, books and cheese.
And there is nothing wrong with that.
