About The Waterhole Project

If we consider a global issue in local terms, what insights might we gain? The Waterhole Project investigates the global problem of anthropogenic climate change from the perspective of place.

Museum curator and environmental historian George Main explores the histories and contemporary realities of a waterhole and its surrounds at Combaning, a productive farming district near Temora in southern New South Wales, to consider the cultural and historical dimensions of global climate change. Might explorations of the local guide our responses to this global crisis?

Research findings are presented in The Waterhole Project research blog. You are invited to join the discussion.
