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.
Me and UooUoo (pronounced you-you) combines Victoria’s renowned passion for the arts and culture with a dash of outdoor adventure. Spanning 10 weeks from September to November 2020, the art trail encourages communities to be active by visiting unique art sculptures.
One hundred UooUoo sculptures, each one individually designed by an artist and sponsored by a business, will find homes in laneways, streets, parks and public spaces, forming walking trails throughout Melbourne and Geelong.
To help make this large-scale event come to life, we need your generosity.
Sponsorship offers an unprecedented business development, employee and community engagement opportunity. Access a range of marketing, PR, and CSR benefits, reach new audiences and put your organisation on the map.
Sponsor this unique event to promote your business, drive customers to your door and support a much-loved institution.
Submissions are now open
The RCH Foundation and its supporters invite Victorian based artists to submit their designs to transform UooUoo, a specially commissioned three-dimensional sculpture by Melbourne artist Alexander Knox.
UooUoo is a canvas for your creativity, and designs are welcomed in any medium – from traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic – whatever the art form, we want you to add drama, fun and a unique creative flare to Me and UooUoo!
