Congrats Dr Caroline Butler-Bowdon, 2017 Churchill Fellow

Congratulations to Dr Caroline Butler-Bowdon, Director Strategy & Engagement, Sydney Living Museums who, today, was announced as one of the 2017 Churchill Fellows.

Caroline joins a passionate and highly motivated list of 109 Australians, from a pool of 1140 applicants, who will travel the world in 2018 in search of new ideas, innovation and excellence made possible by this prestigious Fellowship.

Through this Fellowship, Caroline will explore the best new global models of visitor accessibility and experience at heritage sites in the UK, Denmark, USA and Canada.

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust was established in 1965 to honour the memory of Sir Winston Churchill and fulfil his wish to offer people from all walks of life, the opportunity to travel overseas to gain new knowledge and insights that can be practically applied in Australia to positively impact our communities at large.

“It is 52 years since the Churchill Fellowship was first awarded in honour of Sir Winston Churchill however, the projects that will be aided by his legacy are still, as he intended, firmly focussed on the future,” said CEO, Churchill Trust, Mr Adam Davey.

“Churchill Fellows are ordinary Australians with extraordinary abilities and aspirations.”
