Outstanding Contribution to Heritage Award

Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre Project

Entrant: The Air Force Museum

In the wake of the 2010/11 Canterbury earthquakes the Air Force Museum provided free, secure space to 38 local heritage organisations and their collections. It raised significant funds and in-kind support to assist participating organisations with material costs, equipment and specialist training. Their collaborative approach is a fine example of privileging community needs above private enterprise to ensure the safe housing of our cultural heritage in the wake of disaster. The benefits were both immediate and long-term.
