Cultural sustainability in Australian country towns: amenity, mobility, and everyday life

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • This project examines cultural sustainability in three small Australian country towns. Previous understandings of sustainability have neglected the realm of culture while emphasising the economic, social and environmental. Working across the themes of belonging, mobility and change, and heritage and innovation, this project will produce a complex understanding of the culture of Australian country towns and cultural sustainability in those towns. Drawing upon cross-disciplinary methodology, outcomes will include multiple interdisciplinary research publications and digital cultural mapping.
