Brief description By exploring the everyday experiences of culture and cultural amenity in three country towns, this cross-disciplinary project provides the first comprehensive documentation of the complexity of cultural sustainability within rural Australia. We will explore issues of demographic mobility; individual and community relationships to places and histories; social and economic adaptability to local, national and global cultural influences; and the role of cultural infrastructure and heritage in community well-being and sustainability. Project outcomes include scholarly publications and presentations; a series of community-driven digital cultural maps; and feedback for community and government on the impact of culture on sustainability.
