Abstract

Our team developed a travelling museum exhibit for the Fire Service Museum of Victoria to present the impact of major Victorian bushfires, and tell the stories of those affected by them. Our project group researched newspaper, book, and video archives and conducted interviews with firefighters. The gathered information was incorporated into the exhibit in the form of several displays, iPad-based interactive timelines, and museum artifacts. The Anniversary Bushfire Exhibit will be displayed in different locations across Victoria, thus, all exhibit components were designed to be portable and easily configurable to any room size.
