Capturing Our Ephemeral History Of Live Performance

Capturing Our Ephemeral History Of Live Performance

Reverend Lancelot Threlkeld saw an Aboriginal Dance of Welcome in Newcastle’s East End Settlement in 1825 History. AusStage Australia’s research portal for crucial information on live performance in Australia allows us to discover that it was held in consequence of our being among them.

Threlkeld’s papers and reminiscences (1824-1859), which he received while he was a trainee with the evangelical London Missionary Society were published in 1979. They can be accessed for further research. His description of the singing and dancing may have resembled the Corroboree at a campfire created by Joseph Lycett, a convict artist from Newcastle in 1817.

Searching the database for the term corroboree, will reveal hundreds of records of corroborees from across the continent, ranging in age from 1816 to 1927. The earliest record was 300 people dancing and singing at Main Beach in Tasmania, opposite George Rocks. Tolobunganah was also record by an early settler who saw the event.

Australian Theatre Production History

The database also contains the first Australian theatre production staged by white settlers George Farquhar, an Irish playwright’s 1706 play, The Recruitment Officer.

This entry scans well and shows that convicts did it in Sydney in 1789, in a Mud-wall Hut in Honour of King George III’s Birthday. Watkin Tench and Captain Arthur Phillip were both note as being in the audience.

AusStage has been internationally recognized since its inception 18 years ago as the gold standard, for open access records of live performances. AusStage, which is based at Flinders University and the product of pioneering collaborative research efforts between 18 universities as well as industry partners, is a result of an innovative collective research effort. The 100,000th live performance in Australia was add in May.

This database dates back to 1789 and includes information about amateur and professional performances. The importance of live performances in rural areas and in towns is equal to that in major cities. Even android and animal performers can record.

The Rabbit Hole History

AusStage links allow you to dig deeper into the history of theatre through records on books and articles from other collections. It’s like falling down the rabbit hole when you enter the database. It can be use to help you discover complex aspects of Australian theatre history. As well as the production and consumption commercial and non-commercial performances, and audience analysis. It allows researchers to track the careers of artists at both national and international levels.

AusStage is a significant help in my research on child actors from 1880-1920. Ivy Emms (1905-1949), a hardworking juvenile singer and dancer. From regional Victoria in World War I, was one of my sources. A database search reveals that she was working at Melbourne’s Tivoli Theater. As a choreographer 30 years after performing patriotic songs in pantomimes. (An obituary by The Argus says that she died from a short illness. AusStage allows you to visualize her creative relationships.

AusStage records as of July 11 include 102,643 performances, 142,285 contributors and 15,536 organizations, 17,170 works. There are also records for 9,991 venues, 64,088 resources, and 17,170 works. Access to AusStage was available from 138 countries, with 78% of users from Australia.

Imagine Theatres

AusStage’s mission is to preserve and retrieve Australia‚Äôs performing arts heritage and make it available digitally. At the moment, 12 Australian universities are working together to create visualisations of some Australia’s most significant historical theatre venues.

The floor plan for Newcastle’s Victoria Theatre can be use as a 3D digital reproduction and experience. It is one of many elements that contributes to a digital. Recreation of the theatre and its colourful neo-Grecian interiors in its first year (1891-92). The Victoria is New South Wales’ oldest theatre.

The Victoria was originally a Variety theatre. It was renovate in 1920 and install cinema projection technology in 1920. This enabled the Victoria to host live performances for many more decades. Century Venues, which purchased the theatre in 1999, has plans to reopen it.

Public Health Has Saved Lives From History

Public Health Has Saved Lives From History

We are reminded of the importance of public health response in controlling the spread of diseases by the corona virus epidemic. But what is actually public health? Why is it that we hear so much from public health professionals about the coronavirus, and other health threats?

Broadly speaking, medicine is primarily concerned with treating diseases in patients. While public health is focus on improving the health of communities and preventing future disease.

Public health activities can be broad and diverse. These include health promotion campaigns, infection surveillance and control (as with the response to coronavirus). Providing clean air, safe food, and screening for diseases. These are just three examples of the importance that public health plays in our lives.

Reduced Vaccine-Preventable Disease Health

One of the greatest achievements in medicine and public health is the development of vaccines that protect against infectious diseases. Vaccines have saved literally millions of lives the World Health Organisation (WHO). Estimates that at least ten thousand people died between 2010-2015 and prevented countless others from becoming sick.

The effectiveness of vaccines means that we rarely see measles, polio and measles in developed countries. Modern medicine has made it possible to protect people and communities. From some of the most deadly diseases with a single, safe injection.

Public health is demonstrate by the delivery of vaccines to people all over the globe and the consequent. Reduction in the incidence of disease.

The eradication of smallpox is perhaps the most striking example of how vaccines have had an impact on global healths. Smallpox, a viral disease that causes fever and pustular rash, was one of our most severe infectious diseases. It claimed the lives of around 300 million people worldwide in the 20th century.

Public healths doctors sought to quickly identify smallpox cases in order to eradicate it. To prevent the disease from spreading further, the public healths measure known as ring. Vaccination was use to vaccinate the people who were in contact with the cases. The WHO declared smallpox eliminated in 1980. This is consider one of the most important achievements in public health.

Tobacco Control Health

While there is still much to done, smoking rates have decrease in recent decades. This has had great healths benefits.

Public health played a crucial role in promoting the message of science linking smoking to poor healths outcomes and implementing measures to reduce smoking rates.

Through interventions like healths promotion campaigns, which provide information to the public about tobacco’s dangers, restrictions on cigarette advertisement, plain packaging, restrictions for smoking in public places and increased taxes on cigarettes, we have been able to reduce the number of deaths from smoking.

Tobacco control is one the greatest achievements in public healths. This is particularly true because we have often had to fight the industry or big tobacco to get these initiatives off of the ground.

Tobacco control is a prime example of coordinated action from many government sectors to address a major public-health problem. This area has been recognize as a leader worldwide.

Safety Of Motor Vehicles

Modern society has seen motor vehicles as a significant advancement, but they have also been a leading cause of death and injury.

In the past few decades, road deaths have decreased in industrialized countries. This is despite an increase in the number of drivers and the distances traveled on roads during this time.

With the help of many interventions, we have been able achieve safety improvements and thus fewer deaths.

This includes increased regulation of motor vehicle design standards, improved roads and seatbelt regulation. Speed limits, drink driving deterrents, education, and speed limits.

History Of The Aborigines Protection Board

History Of The Aborigines Protection Board

In 1883, the NSW Aborigines Protection Board was create. This was a time when Social Darwinism theory was dominant and NSW was looking towards a future in a federated white Australia.

Authorities were challenge by the existence of Aboriginal communities. Many of them wanted land in their own country. Initially charged with the oversight of the gazettals of Aboriginal reserves, the Protection Board quickly took control and appointed its own managers.

2015 marks 100 years since the NSW Aborigines Protection Act was amend. This gave the board broad powers that still have consequences. The 1915 amendments gave full power to the board to expel Aboriginal children from their families. They allowed for the acceleration of the revocation and expulsion of Aboriginal families from successful, largely independent farms throughout the state.

This boards was not a place of protection for many Aboriginal people, but of persecution. From 1883 to 1969, the board had complete control over the lives and affairs Aboriginal people in NSW.

The negative effects of policies like segregation and assimilation, child extraction, wage withholding, and child removal lasted for decades. The Encyclopedia of Aboriginal Australia entry on this board concludes that the legacy of the policies has bitterness among Aboriginal people over their treatment by those who were entrust to their welfare.

This has led to a widespread sense of grief and resentment among NSW Aboriginal communities about the past. However, it is not clear what happened or why. How do local experiences of child removal, dispossession, employment and educational restrictions relate to larger patterns throughout the state?

Researchers Search For Whole History Board

A new ARC research project aims at providing the first comprehensive investigation into the activities of the Aborigines Protect Board and their effects on the lives of Aboriginal families in NSW

This research must be done while the people who were under the control and supervision of the board during its last decades are still alive. Many people are nearing the end of life. Keep in mind that Aboriginal women and men in NSW who were born between 1996-2000 are still expected to live 60 and 65 years, respectively.

The board was initially headed by a Protector and continued to be headed by the chief executive officer of the NSW Police Force until 1938. The board became more draconian in the 1920s and 1930s. This led to significant resistance from Aboriginal people, who called for reform and abolition. An inquiry was held in 1937.

Welfare Board Legislation Board

The 1940 Welfare Board legislation was finally pass in the wake of this inquiry. The NSW Aborigines Welfare Board, which was then head by a new Superintendent for Aboriginal Welfare, continued to have unmatch control over Aboriginal lives until 1969.

The Welfare Board still forced Aboriginal people to assimilate. These programs perpetuated existing systems of oppression and control, but with a new name that is more acceptable to the non-Aboriginal population.

From the first legislation of the board in 1909, to its reincarnation in 1939 as the Welfare Board. State control was at its most extreme. These 30 years saw Aboriginal people held in solitary confinement on reserves, and severely restricted on their civil rights.

This period can be describe as a period of erasure, silencing, and is perpetuate by historiographic inattention. This was a crucial time for Aboriginal people and communities as they transitioned from self-sufficiency. To what Heather Goodall called the second dispossession, which is now subordination and dependence.

Combining Personal And Archival Information

The four-year ARC project will see an experienced group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous. Historians create a landmark social history about the Aboriginal experience at the Protection/Welfare Board.

This project was initiate to address a pressing need for an in-depth. Understanding of the history by Aboriginal peoples, as well as by the wider Australian community. This is more than an institutional history. It is an in-depth examination of the lived experiences of those living under the state’s control.

The project’s most important component is to give knowledge to Aboriginal communities about. Access to restricted materials is crucial for understanding and evaluating the Indigenous experience in NSW.
