It’s been 10 years since Wild in Art came to the world’s attention with GoSuperlambananas and we helped mark this anniversary with a special event in our hometown. Bee in the City captured the hearts of Manchester’s residents and visitors and, proving the impact of events like these, it recorded sweet results for the local economy and communities.
Next year, we’re turning the country patchwork and helping to spread Elmer the Patchwork Elephant’s positive messages about inclusivity, courage and friendship with events in Suffolk, Plymouth and Tyne & Wear.
We’ll also be busy island hopping in 2019. Working with Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, Go Wild Gorillas will see life-size Gorillas placed on a trail of discovery across Jersey. Not to be confused for the real thing, colourful wallaby sculptures will be taking over the Isle of Man for Wallabies Gone Wild to help raise funds for the island’s hospice. Did you know that the Isle of Man has the largest wild population of wallabies outside of Australasia?
Over the past decade through auctions alone, our events have enabled £13 million to be raised for charity partners. They’ve also helped millions of people experience, and feel the benefit of, art outside of the traditional gallery setting.
