Out of the dust comes something fabulous.
That is the vision for the masterplan which aims to "bring some life" back into Rand.
The small country town is hoping a bit of planning, love, community involvement and a "modern" take on silo art will put Rand on the map.
And Corowa-based architecture firm Regional Design Services have thrown its support behind the town pro bono as a "love project" for them.
Although still in the planning stage, the town hopes to restore historical places and commission artists to put Rand on the silo art trail.
Architect Phillip Neilson said the "threat of decline" in rural communities is something the Rand Town Improvement Committee is hoping to counteract with their Plan Rand initiative.
"There are so many little nuggets of history in Rand that no one thinks about and we are hoping to bring them back to life," he said.
"My partner Aaron has connections out there so this project is one of love for us and it is funny how many people you speak to or come across which know someone from Rand or are from that area themselves.
"We are hoping to tap into those memories people have with the area and bring them to life.
"This is about Rand surviving into the future."
Mr Neilson said the plan is to restore some life back into the Billabong Creek, the old weighbridge, bring events to the local pub and "make Rand a destination you come to and not just drive through".
"The weighbridge is apparently one of only three of those left in Australia and that is something that has just been forgotten," he said.

"A group of eight artists has been contacted to commission a collage of art onto the giant silos.
"They don't want it to be like every other silo art with a big picture of something relevant to the town. But rather a mixture of things that might continue to change over time - something really contemporary and modern and unlike anything else across Australia."
Mr Neilson said the committee will be at the football ground on Saturday handing out surveys for people to have their say.
"We have three sections - current resident, past residents and visitors," he said.
They hope to have implemented the plan by Rand's 100th birthday in 2026.
