Award winning child migrant exhibition
While developing the On Their Own exhibition about child migrants, the Australian National Maritime Museum approached Firefly to help them develop an online timeline for the exhibition. The exhibition presents the stories of former child migrants and the child migration schemes that saw more than 100,000 children sent from Britain to Canada, Australia and other Commonwealth countries from the 1860s, up until the 1960s.
The timeline served to outline and highlight the key dates in the history of child migration from Britain to across the seas. With extensive material, including archival photographs, the timeline was designed to be flowing and alive, with a high touch interactive component.
Recipient of the IMAGinE Award for best exhibition in 2011.
