Coming in January 2021…

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.

Join UooUoo on a colourful outdoor adventure to help raise money for the RCH and change the future of paediatric healthcare for generations to come.
