The Callaway Centre is an archive and research facility within the UWA Conservatorium of Music.

The Conservatorium’s main auditorium is the Callaway auditorium, and its weekly research seminar series is the Callaway Centre seminar series. Beyond the Conservatorium, the Callaway Centre is also part of the Cultural Collections community of UWA, alongside the Berndt Museum, Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, UWA library Special Collections, and the newly-established Digitisation Centre (CRARM)—a community that involves a range of professionals committed to developing and sharing knowledge about practices in archiving, preservation, curatorship, cataloguing, digitisation, and accessibility.
