Launching on 20 January and running until 21 March 2021, the cities of Melbourne and Geelong will be taken over by Me and UooUoo. One hundred UooUoo sculptures, all uniquely designed by Australia’s most talented artists, will form walking trails of discovery and adventure for all to enjoy.
Me and UooUoo brings communities back together to rediscover the adventure of our cities, while celebrating and raising funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Melbourne.
After entertaining children, adults and families alike, the legacy of Me and UooUoo continues as each sculpture is auctioned to raise funds for the RCH Foundation.
What is UooUoo?
UooUoo (pronounced you-you) has been created by award-winning Melbourne artist Alexander Knox, who also created the iconic sculpture ‘Creature’ that stands in the main foyer of the RCH.
UooUoo is an imaginary Australian creature whose shape is loosely drawn from the wombat and dugong. A mysterious being, UooUoo is highly empathetic, playful and brave, but can be mischievous at times.
Join UooUoo on an adventure to help raise funds for the RCH and change the future of paediatric healthcare for generations to come!
Where can you find UooUoo?
One hundred UooUoos will be dotted throughout laneways, streets, parks, beaches and public spaces across Melbourne and Geelong.
