Businesses which have sponsored a T-Rex on the GoGo trail recently had a sneak-peek at the sculpture, as well as at the artists’ designs for the dinosaurs. The sponsors will soon decide which artist they would like to commission to decorate their T-Rex sculpture and when all 20 are placed around the city this summer they will create a public art exhibition with a difference.
Break believes that whatever a child’s start in life, with the right support there’s no limit to what they can achieve. Where this support is missing, the charity is there to help. It supports children and young people to find the courage, strength and hope they need to live happy and successful lives. Funds to support Break’s work will be raised through the business sponsorship of the sculptures, donations from GoGo trail hunters, and the eventual auction of the sculptures in 2021.
GoGoDiscover will begin this summer with the 20 T-Rex sculptures trampling their way through the streets of Norwich. This Jurassic jaunt of a trail will be set out to help people explore the city and will culminate in the discovery of another dino-mite visitor – Dippy the Diplodocus at Norwich Cathedral.
The GoGoDiscover 2020 trail will finish in October. However, these dinosaurs won’t be like their real-life predecessors and fade into extinction. They will be back, along with some new friends, in 2021 and they will take over all of Norfolk – not just the city centre. GoGoDiscover 2021 will also feature a special Community and Learning Programme for local schools and community groups to take part in their own adventures.
