In 2020, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) will mark its 150th anniversary. In recognition of this major milestone, the RCH Foundation, supported by Wild in Art, is bringing colour and creativity to the streets of Melbourne and Geelong with a spectacular public art trail.
Commencing in January 2021, Me and UooUoo (pronounced you-you) will combine Victoria’s renowned passion for the arts and culture with a dash of outdoor adventure, and encourage communities to be active by visiting unique art sculptures.
One hundred UooUoo sculptures, each one individually designed by a Victorian artist and sponsored by a business, will find homes in laneways, streets, parks and public spaces, forming walking trails throughout Melbourne and Geelong.
Me and UooUoo will open on 20 January 2021 and run until 21 March 2021.
When the art trail finishes, the sculptures will then be auctioned to raise funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital.

The cross-section of creatives, including First Nation artists, street artists, sculptors, painters and up-and-coming talent have started bringing their UooUoo sculptures to life in warehouses, backyards and creative studios across the nation.
The RCH Foundation and its supporters thank everyone who submitted a design for UooUoo.
“We hope you will help us celebrate 150 years of great care in 2020 by taking this special opportunity to support the RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail. We invite you to join us as we honour the hospital’s incredible journey and the beloved place it holds in the hearts of Victorians.”
