Great North Snowdogs is a large-scale, mass-appeal public art event designed to communicate the best of our region’s art, heritage and culture to the widest possible audience. In winter 2016, over 50 large (183cm x 154cm) Snowdog sculptures will be decorated by artists and community groups to create a trail across Tyne and Wear for 10 weeks.
Integral to the main event will be an education programme, open to all primary schools in Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Northumberland. It will feature around 100 little Snowdog sculptures (122cm long x 102cm tall), which will be decorated by students and teachers.
Sponsorship of a little Snowdog sculpture costs £600. For this each school will receive; a blank sculpture, education resource pack and a high profile location on trial. In addition, the first 30 schools to sign up will be eligible to claim free Arts Award training provided by Culture Bridge for one of their staff members.
