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 AMaGA. They are usually held in a suitably theatrical venue and are open to any one with an interest in Australia's performing arts history and heritage.

In lieu of a physical conference this year, PAHN will be holding the 2020 Ghost LIghtning Talks. Recorded video presentations will be hosted on this site in late November, followed by live Zoom Q&As and the PAHN AGM on November 30. Please visit the Ghost Lightning Talks page for more details.

Abstracts and presenter bios will be posted soon, but you can view the 2019 Speakers and Abstracts document here.
