The Canon comprises 100 of the most significant practices, technologies, people, places, artefacts and buildings in technical theatre history. Each entry in the Canon is linked to the timeline, and is published with a catalogue sheet both digital and on paper.

The Canon is a representation of the history of theatre technology as European cultural heritage in a dynamic, engaging and varied way using modern technologies. The Canon will support not only education, but also technicians, scenographers, architects developing scenic spaces, researchers, cultural managers, artists, and spectators.

The methodology and the platform developed for the Canon will be transferable to other disciplines.
