Break issues callout for artists to decorate T.rex and Steppe Mammoth sculptures for GoGoDiscover 2022

3 Jun 2021

While the T.rex for this year’s GoGoDiscover trail have been decorated and are waiting to finally be unleashed on the streets of Norwich, the 2022 event is set to be an even bigger trail of prehistoric proportions. Now Break is inviting artists to express their interest in bringing next year’s sculptures to life!

In summer 2022, even more T.rexes will be joined by Steppe Mammoth sculptures to raise vital funds for Break. Designs from artists for both sculptures can now be submitted, with the sculpture sponsors commissioning a design and artist to collaborate with later this year.

While Break hopes to continue working with many of the talented artists who have been involved in its previous trails, it is also keen to hear from new and emerging talent, as Tracey Warnes, GoGoDiscover Art Co-ordinator, comments:

“Seeing the artists’ designs to bring the sculptures to life is always one of the most exciting parts of these events. The artists can be really creative and have lots of fun in this public art trail, celebrating the creativity and rich culture we have in the region. Our artists always love taking part – from coming up with ideas, decorating the sculpture and seeing it on our trail, to hearing the reaction it gets from the public and finding out how much money it raises for Break at the charity auction. With next year’s trail being an even bigger event as both T.rex and mammoth sculptures are being unleashed across the county, we would love to get some new talent on board from artists of all genres. We’d love to hear from artists who think outside the box to create designs which will make people smile.”

Artists are paid to take part and will be acknowledged on a plaque attached to the base of the sculptures and in some of the GoGoDiscover promotional materials.

GoGoDiscover is delivered by East Anglian based children’s charity Break in partnership with Wild in Art.
