We now have officially announced our sculptures for our exciting public art trail in Autumn 2022! A free event for the whole of our community to enjoy, the spectacular showcase of creative talent will be put on display across Kirklees, forming an interactive Art Trail never before seen here in Kirklees. The sculptures that will make up the Art Trail are Snowdogs, they will bring lots of fun and colour to our towns and villages across the region.
To celebrate the care that is available to patients in their own homes and care homes in every street, village and town, 30 uniquely designed large Snowdogs and 30 mini Snowdogs will create an interactive trail across Kirklees. Lasting for eight weeks, the amazing installations will pop up in towns and villages throughout our region for everyone to explore and discover. The free public event is set to benefit the whole community, with hundreds of thousands of people expected to join in the fun.
It’s the perfect excuse to visit our great towns and villages next year. We hope it will inspire you to get outside and explore your local communities again.
Each bespoke Snowdog will be based on one exciting theme, which is being kept firmly under wraps for the time being. But you don’t have too long to wait to find out, keep your eyes peeled for more details!
We're teaming up with event experts Wild in Art, who have been delivering world class public events across the globe for over ten years.
For eight weeks in Autumn 2022, our towns and villages will become a haven for visitors, all flocking to see amazing Snowdogs designed and decorated by talented artists from across our region and beyond.
The Art Trail will celebrate our rich history and shared culture, encourage people to rediscover vibrant urban spaces and spend time outdoors, and show off the creativity that our towns and villages have to offer.
Businesses and individuals will be given a unique opportunity to sponsor a Snowdog and schools will also be able to get involved in a whole range of creative learning activities – and they’ll even be given the chance to design and adopt their very own mini sculpture.
