This is your unique opportunity to partner with one of Australia’s most respected and well-loved institutions during its anniversary year.
To celebrate 150 years of exceptional care, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Melbourne is bringing colour and creativity to the streets of Melbourne and Geelong with a spectacular public art trail culminating in a fundraising auction in 2020.
UooUoo (pronounced ‘you you’) is the newest addition to the RCH family, created by renowned Victorian artist Alexander Knox. A mythical creature, UooUoo captures the transformative spirit of the RCH and embodies 150 years of exceptional care, compassion and support by hospital staff and the community.
UooUoo sculptures will become a canvas for creativity as artists will be invited to customise one of the 1.5-metre-tall sculptures, so that each one will be unique. The one hundred unique UooUoos will then find homes in laneways, streets, parks and public spaces, forming two sections of a walking trail across Melbourne and Geelong.
Me and UooUoo will be an extraordinary walking experience, encouraging individuals, families and businesses to get moving and see some amazing art. After the event, the sculptures will be auctioned and take up more permanent residence with their new owners. By either sponsoring or purchasing a sculpture, individuals and corporations will contribute to this major fundraising event for the hospital, ensuring an enduring legacy for future generations.
There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available to partner with us over 15 months to help support the future of paediatric healthcare, meet corporate social responsibility objectives and receive high profile exposure.
