RESEARCH - the first of its kind to quantify and measure the success of silo art in Coonalpyn and Karoonda as popular sites on the Australian Silo Art Trail - has shown they can have a major impact on the wellbeing for rural and regional areas.
Australian Silo Art and Wellbeing report co author Amelia Green provided valuable insights to communities, including Lameroo, Murray Bridge, Karoonda, and Mannum, about how silo art can benefit small and often ailing country towns.
The research will also assist towns, such as Lameroo, in the planning stages of these projects to ensure they can reach the full potential of economic and social outcomes.
District Council of Kimba executive assistant/governance officer Emily Maxwell said they had received feedback from visitors that have stopped in Kimba and made the trip purely to see the silo art.
