Silo art in Brim, by Guido van Helten - Image Karen Simpson (2019) 


Public space in Camden, United Kingdom (2014)

Many small towns undertake silo art projects to attract visitors to places they have never heard of, to create a lifeline for struggling local businesses and to revive community pride. Public and media discussion often emphasise tourist attraction and immediate local business stimulation as the primary outcomes of these projects for rural and regional towns, many of which are home to several hundred residents or less.

This report represents the first step in providing much needed empirical and critical investigation into the social and economic impacts of Australian silo art. Specifically, the aim of this research is to explore (1) how visitors and local communities experience silo art and (2) the impacts of silo art experiences of the well-being of visitors and communities.
