AUSSTAGE: GATEWAY TO AUSTRALIAN LIVE PERFORMANCE, PHASE 3 - ENHANCING COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH METHODOLOGIES THROUGH DIGITAL NETWORKING TECHNOLOGIES

Grant number: LE0775527

Abstract

AusStage provides an accessible information gateway for investigating live performance as a wealth-creating industry, a generator of social capital and an indicator of 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 and innovative live performances project images of Australian culture to audiences here and overseas. AusStage uses new technologies to monitor the evolution of Australian live performance, to track innovation and excellence in the live performance industry, and to develop new methods of collaborative e-research.
