Me and UooUoo: The RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail

20 January – 7 April 2021

To mark the 150th anniversary of The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Melbourne, the RCH Foundation spread colour and creativity to the streets of Melbourne and Geelong with a spectacular public art trail.

Me and UooUoo (pronounced you-you) combined Victoria’s renowned passion for the arts and culture with a dash of outdoor adventure, encouraging communities to reconnect with their cities, and be active by visiting one hundred unique art sculptures.

Each UooUoo – individually designed by an Australian artist and sponsored by a Victorian business – has found a home in laneways, streets, parks and public spaces, forming walking trails throughout Melbourne and Geelong.

Thank you to those who pre-purchased or bid for a UooUoo during the art trail auction. Your commitment to providing UooUoo with a forever home supports the life-changing work at The Royal Children’s Hospital.

Me and UooUoo is a registered COVIDSafe Event and will be implementing COVID-19 safety measures throughout the art trail to keep our community safe.
