Following on from the amazing success of GoGoGorillas! in the summer of 2013, Break and Wild in Art are delighted to announce GoGoDragons! for summer 2015, bringing more love and laughter, families, communities, artists and local business together for another summer of fun!
The success of GoGoGorillas! was unbelievable. The way the public took them to their hearts - the partnerships, sponsors and artists who made the trail come to life will be remembered for a long time to come and the legacy lives on.
This time, Break and Wild in Art have chosen the Dragon, a mythical creature whose legend is much embedded in the history of Norwich.
We will be looking for artists to submit designs and businesses to sponsor the Dragons working towards a stunning trail around the City of Norwich in June 2015.
As well as the main Dragon sculptures, there will also be community and school projects to engage with the widest possible audience.
We are at the beginning of another awesome journey which we hope will bring amazing art to Norwich, visitors to our beautiful City and lots of joy and laughter.
Michael Rooney, Fundraising Manager at Break, says “Break is really looking forward to delivering another fantastic event for Norwich in 2015. We are very pleased to be working with our excellent partners Wild in Art and are excited about the possibilities that the Dragon sculpture brings. We want to build on the success of GoGoGorillas! whilst at the same time delivering some different aspects to increase its appeal to wider communities. Our aim is to have an inspiring event and raise money for Break’s work with vulnerable children young people and families. We will shortly be making an announcement about how the money from GoGoGorillas! is being used".
Sally Ann Wilkinson, Director of Wild in Art says “Wild in Art is delighted to be working with Break to bring GoGoDragons! to Norwich in 2015. This event will herald the arrival of the Norwich Dragon – a sculpture specifically designed to engage artists, people of all ages and communities in a summer-long celebration of Norwich and Norfolk’s rich cultural offer.“
The Dragon Mould is being created by Chris Wilkinson, Creative Director of Wild in Art.
