The Griffith University are undertaking a silo art research project to explore the economic and social impacts of Australian silo art on the wellbeing of people who:
(1) visit silo art sites; and
(2) live in towns with silo art.
The findings of this research will provide much needed publicly available empirical evidence regarding the current impacts of silo art as a growing national movement. The knowledge gained will also help to support and shape future mural, public art and cultural projects throughout rural and regional Australia, including the ongoing promotion, activation and extension of existing silo art sites.
There are two online surveys:
- The ‘main survey’ (approx. 20 minutes) for both (1) silo art visitors and (2) local communities living in towns with silo art; and
- A shorter business survey (approx. 5 minutes) for business owners/managers based within 100km of a silo art site.
The business survey is intended for a range of businesses (including those that have not experienced any impacts associated with silo art) and there is space provided for optional comments (e.g. potential ways to support or enhance the potential impact of silo art on businesses).

A report report from this research will be published in July.
