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!
