Category Archives: Silos Project + Shearers Ballet

A partnership project between Arts OutWest and The Corridor Project with artistic director Patrick Nolan. We worked with some of the country’s top arts makers and the communities of Cowra and Canowindra. Whilst originally working towards a large scale public performance, with no further funding available this project has now wrapped up. Work is still progressing on the ‘Shearers Ballet’ part of the project, working towards a possible public performance in 2017. Visit the www.silosproject.com.au website for great photos, video and archives from this project.
