Show lights up West Coast | PHOTOS

Communities across the West Coast had the opportunity to see their silos lit up and history displayed as Illuminart's 'Travelling Light' show toured Eyre Peninsula.

The light show visited the Elliston silos last Tuesday night, then the Thevenard silos on Thursday and the Streaky Bay Institute on Friday as part of the South Australian Living Artists Festival, finishing up its tour which has seen it visit a number of towns across the state.

Locals braved the cold weather to see colourful animated stories looking back at coastal life on Eyre Peninsula and across South Australia.

Stories from the West Coast and Spencer Gulf were prominent.

Serena Gunter from Arts Ceduna said they were grateful to Illuminart for visiting Ceduna, as the Port to Port tour initially did not include Ceduna.

"We have not had an event like this in Ceduna for some time and I think people enjoyed the night," she said.

"It was good to see them promoting the history of the region through the short films and it was good to see the local content.

"There was a snippet of Arts Ceduna work too, with work created by students and community members at a workshop used in the show."

She said the show was the first step in the potential for having the Thevenard silos painted in the same vein as other towns on Eyre Peninsula and across the state.

"It was a step into looking at whether we can get something permanent here," Ms Gunter said.

"We are hoping the silos can have some sort of light show, or permanent artwork, which will help bring people into Ceduna."
