Annual conferences are the prime activity of PAHN. Meetings of PAHN have been held since 1992 when a special two day gathering, On with the Show, was held in the Victorian Arts Centre. Since then meetings have been held which sometimes coincide with the annual conference of Museums Australia. They are usually held in a suitably theatrical venue and are open to anyone with an interest in Australia's performing arts history and heritage.

In 2017 we held our conference in Adelaide which included a tour of the theatrical holdings of the University of Adelaide. The 2018 PAHN Conference is being held this September in Wollongong at the new Research Hub in the University of Wollongong. The conference will be held over 3 days – Wednesday 26th to Friday 28th September.
This year the conference will include an additional day (Wednesday 26th) devoted to a workshop from the UNESCO Australian Memory of the World Committee. The PAHN conference will then continue on Thursday 27th – Friday 28th September.

If you are interested in speaking at the conference or attending please get in touch with us here.
