A new collaboration between the Sydney Opera House and the Google Cultural Institute will enable audiences around the world to explore the living story of Australia’s most famous building.

Launched by NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts, Troy Grant on Wednesday, 27 April 2016, 9.00am at the Concert Hall Southern Foyer, Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point, the collection includes rare archival images, performances, architectural drawings, interviews and other unseen collection highlights of the Opera House, with touchscreens and tablets providing access to explore over 1,000 digital artefacts.

The NSW Deputy Premier will interact with local high school students as they discover the collection for the first time, including trying out a newly created 360° immersive Opera House experience using the latest Google Cardboard technology.

A highlight of the event will be a meet-and-greet with the curator of the collection, Sam Doust, as he presents his favourite moments from across the 50 exhibits to local high school students.
