Purposes & Rules

Written by

Much of Australia's important theatre history is in danger of being forgotten. The very theatres themselves, which gave us the framework for this panorama of talent, are endangered. THA has been formed to fight for the preservation of both the history and the fabric of our ongoing theatre heritage.

 

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of THA is to promote and encourage:

  • the study of and research into Australia’s rich theatre history;
  • the preservation, renovation and use of Australia’s theatres;
  • the identification, documentation and preservation of items relating to Australia’s theatre history;
  • the establishment and maintenance of links with similar organisations in Australia.

 

HISTORY

The organisation was founded by Evan Hercules in 1995 and originally called the Victoria Theatres Trust (VTT). To better reflect our national focus, at the 2008 AGM the VTT membership decided to incorporate and to change the name of the organisation to Theatre Heritage Australia Inc. (THA).

 

RULES

We are bound by a set of rules lodged with Consumer Affairs Victoria.
