GoGoCreate has 150 sign ups!

GoGoCreate starts the new year with sign ups from 150 schools, sports clubs and organisations to take part in the learning programme to run alongside the large hare sculptures in 2018 celebrating Norfolk childrens charity Break in their 50th year.

The groups who have signed up stretch right across Norfolk, with a record number of High Schools, as well as Rainbow groups, Sports clubs, primary schools, Break services and Hellesdon hospital. The sign ups have stretched right across the county from Thetford to Holt, and from Great Yarmouth to Kings Lynn.

The leverets or baby hare sculpture will be forming their own trail on the streets of Norwich from 2nd July to 2nd September after which the sculptures will be returned to their owners, many of which will be joining their GoGoGorilla or GoGoDragon from previous trails.

The education and learning project is a key element of the Wild in Art art trails which are in their 10th year, supporting the large sculpture trails worldwide. Sally Ann Wilkinson, director of Wild in Art, said: GoGoCreate is designed to give its participants a voice through art. Learning outcomes demonstrated in the classroom, at home and in the community, and finally visualisd on the sculpture will provide a unique insight into the aspirations, hopes, dreams and fears of future generations in Norfolk. Its a fantastic opportunity and showcase for all involved.

Signing up to the project offers organisations a learning resource pack full of educational hooks, with advise and guidance using the hare as the main theme. There are areas within the programme to support the national curriculum as well as sporting activities and working together as a community and finding out more about a local charity. The project allows the young people to be creative as well as being part of the wider GoGoHares trail. The leverets are returned to their creators in early September as their forever home.

Peter Marron the co-ordinator for the GoGoCreate project said It is great to have the involvement from so many young people across Norfolk and I cant wait to see the creative flair and diversity of designs. The project, a year in the making has two ambassador hare sculptures Bugsy and Daisy that have been seen in many shop windows and public locations in the last few months and they will continue to be hopping around the county before the trail goes live.

Parkside School, College Road, Norwich has been involved in all three trails with Break and cannot wait to get involved with project. Member of staff Hilary Sanderson has already started work on a large hare for the GoGoHare trail.

The GoGoHares trail brought to you by Norfolk childrens charity Break and Wild in Art, will go live on 24th June 2018 until 8th September 2018, with a parade of all the hares called Hare Today Gone Tomorrow at the Forum, Norwich on 7 10 October with the auction on 11th October 2018. All the funds made at the auction will be going to Break who will use it to help change young lives.
