FINALIST: Miles Historical Village Museum for What War Meant to Miles – Heroes, Hardships and Heartfelt Stories
What War Meant to Miles – Heroes, Hardships and Heartfelt Stories involved the reinterpretation and redisplay of the Museum’s wartime collection, including World War 1 and other wars of service; and the trials and tribulations experienced at home and abroad during times of conflict.
The project was a staged process of cataloguing, digitisation, research, community engagement, documentation, concept and detailed design, fabrication and installation. It has inspired local audiences and generated a great sense of pride.
