Performance Matters Archive

The Research Centre is excited to announce the acquisition of the Performance Matters Archive, a set of 40 DVDs documenting public events from the three-year U.K. based research project.

Performance Matters (2009-12) was creative research project rethinking why performance matters through the matter of performance. The project was a collaboration between Goldsmiths, University of London, University of Roehampton and the Live Art Development Agency, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Information about the project is available at:

The Performing Arts Collection at Arts Centre Melbourne is the only repository for the Performance Matters Archive in Australia and the DVDs are available to view in our Research Centre.
