Farm Fair Voices, Space, History, the Middle Ground and 'The Future' of Rural Communities

Education Farming Culture Australia South Australia

A discussion on the role of space, spatiality and history in the sustainability of rural communities is examined with reference to the space and spatial theories of E.W. Soja and some of R. Williams' and G. Davison's perspectives of history. The article also describes the Mapping of Rural Communities project in South Australia and the evidence from one data collection site, the Karoonda Farm Fair in the Mallee Region of the state. It analyses some findings using space, spatiality, history and R. White's middle ground concept to offer suggestions on what education may offer in terms of 'The Future' of rural communities.
