The Silos project was conceived by Dylan Gower and Phoebe Cowdery of The Corridor Project together with Legs On The Wall director Patrick Nolan in partnership with Arts OutWest.
Phase one of ‘The Silos’ ran 2013-2014 as a community wide program of activities: collecting local stories and developing skills in areas like aerial performance, music, theatre and multimedia. This component was funded by Arts NSW.
The Silos project has secured funds from the Arts NSW Regional Theatre funding program to continue development in 2015.
The project is working towards a large scale public outdoor performance using one of the iconic grain silos in the Cowra-Canowindra area, featuring Legs on the Wall and community participants.
Silos are significant structures in regional communities, their use – or lack of – being emblematic of the health of the surrounding country. – Patrick Nolan, Legs on the Wall
