What are the GoGo Hares?

 

The GoGo Hares are sculptures that are part of a charity event which will arrive in Norwich in 2018. The event has been previously held with various different sculptures, including the GoGo Dragons and the GoGo Gorillas. It involves these sculptures forming a trail around the centre of Norwich which anyone is able to participate in.

The sculptures are being designed by Wild in Art and their creative director Chris Wilkinson. Other young artists can get involved in the decoration itself by contacting GoGo Hares via their website and the following link: http://www.gogohares.co.uk/artist.html 

What’s new for the GoGo Hares is that the project is aiming to get 150 local organisations involved in an education programme, which will include schools, nurseries and young clubs. You can also register for this on the GoGo Hares website, as well as further details on how you can sponsor the project.

The sculpture choice of a hare represents East Anglia perfectly, as a popular topic of interest for artists in Norfolk already. 50 of these beautiful sculptures will be dotted around Norwich and we can’t wait to see what the artists will do with the hares!

Who is Behind the Project?

The charity project is a joint collaboration between Wild In Art and Break led by Martin Green. The GoGo Hares represent a celebration of 50 years for the Break charity.

Break are a charity that focus on helping young lives. With six children’s homes in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, they offer single placements to traumatised young people and a Therapeutic Fostering Service. 

Not only this but Break run schemes that help children with both physical and learning disabilities, providing not only support for the children, but for their families too.

Wild in Art is the UK’s leading arts and education company. They support local young creativity by producing public art through organising huge local events. They involve schools, artists and partners, engaging communities and tourists alike. 

Their latest offering is currently on display in Ipswich: Pigs Gone Wild 2016!
