ADSA Conference success!

Absolutely over the moon to have been awarded the Veronica Kelly Prize for best postgraduate prize at the 2012 ADSA Conference, which includes publication of the paper in the ADSA Journal next year. Here is the award citation:

The winner of the Veronica Kelly prize for 2012:
Gavin Findlay,  University of Canberra
“Utilising Tangible and Intangible Heritage in Documenting the History and Works of Splinters Theatre of Spectacle”

The judges wrote that Findlay’s research “engages with the need to supplement tangible documentation of theatre practice and history with intangible memories and meanings in order to locate performance in cultural history and memory. The research is extremely relevant, with practical suggestions of how to capture intangible history related to Australian theatre. Findlay’s work on the Canberra-based company, Splinters, stands as an important case-study which illustrates the urgent need to better archive theatre in Australia.”
