The Hare has been chosen as it is a popular iconic subject for artists and can regularly be seen in the countryside of East Anglia. However this time there will not be just one design, but three!
There will be 50 City sculptures that will form the main trail. This time the County will also be involved, with further sculptures, benefiting rural communities and towns. There will be again be an education programme, with a target of 150 local organisations including schools, nursery groups and clubs. The City, County and education programme will have its own distinct hare design.

“Wild in Art is delighted to be working with Break on the third of a trilogy of events as part of their 50th anniversary programme in 2018. We hope that every hare will strike a golden chord with the communities of Norwich, and Norfolk, sponsors and artists to create a very special event to celebrate the charity’s important and invaluable contribution to the region during the last half century.” Sally-Ann Wilkinson, Director.
