Wild in Art works successfully with numerous public and commercial organisations from a wide range of sectors to achieve mutual marketing and corporate objectives.
Just as the animal sculpture acts as a blank canvas for artists, it also acts as a unique opportunity for companies to involve customers, employees and stakeholders in popular and high profile events.
From regeneration and promotion of an area to bringing footfall to your business premises; from engaging and developing more cohesive links with your local community to seeking opportunities to raise your corporate profile or increase your market share, our events satisfy all of these objectives.
Community participation is integral to all our events and we have a number of ways that companies can support local groups to become involved.
We have a multi-level sponsorship approach thereby enabling engagement from the larger companies to the smaller organisations.
The feedback speaks for itself:
Go Elephants (Norwich, 2008)
Pret a Manger reported a 16% increase in sales purely based on their sponsorship of an elephant sculpture.
Norwich John Lewis was the busiest in the country during the last week of Go Elephants in Norwich.
Jarrolds Department Store reported a 20% increase in sales based upon their sponsorship of a sculpture.
It was fantastic to be part of such a huge event, which turned out to be much more successful than we had originally envisaged. It is very important for Virgin Money to be visible to the business and residential communities. Our staff and their families were really proud that we were supporting the event and completely engaged with it. This was a remarkable event and we would be pleased to consider sponsoring future projects.

Pride of Northampton (Northampton, 2010)
On day one of Pride of Northampton, an additional 25,211 visitors were recorded in the main shopping street, compared to the same day in 2009.
The main shopping centre recorded an 18% increase in footfall during the 10 week period of the event.
Local businesses reported increased turnover of up to 14%.
The judges for East Midlands in Bloom and the national Britain in Bloom commented on the contribution the ‘Pride of Northampton’ made to the town securing regional gold and national silver. What one can perceive but not put a price on is the surge in positivity and civic pride the event instilled in the people of Northampton.
“What one can perceive but not put a price on is the surge in positivity and civic pride the event instilled in the people of Northampton. The Pride of Northampton’s impact will be felt for many years to come.”
