    Description

    "In the lead up to Australia's centenary of civil aviation in 2020/21 this project aims to generate new understandings of this impact and of how the technology of global mobility has shaped people, cultures and communities. This Linkage builds a partnership between the aviation industry, community groups, museums and a multidisciplinary academic team to develop fresh insights from under-utilised sources of aviation heritage, communicate their unique stories to the public through innovative exhibitions and publications, and help conserve it for future generations."
