Break has released details of its GoGoDiscover 2022 Learning & Community Programme, sponsored by Dipple & Conway Opticians, and is calling for schools, colleges and community groups from across the county to stomp on board and sign-up to get creative with a T.rex sculpture. 

Once decorated, the smaller T.rex sculptures, named Breakasaurus, will join the larger sculptures on the GoGoDiscover trail in Summer 2022. The Breakasaurus sculptures will be exhibited across public spaces in cultural and leisure hubs across Norwich, before being returned to the schools and community groups who decorated them.

Peter Marron, GoGoDiscover project manager for Break, comments: “The learning and community programmes have always been an integral part of the success of our previous trails and I know that this one will be just as important and exciting for everyone involved. Norfolk is filled with so much creative talent and this project really offers young people the opportunity to show off their skills. The activity also inspires learning in the classroom and, in addition to receiving the amazing T.rex sculpture, the package includes a creative educational resource pack for teachers filled with lesson plans and fun activities for everyone to really sink their teeth into.”

Packages are available now with an early bird offer until 1st July 2021. However, there are a limited number of Breakasaurus sculptures available, as Peter continues: “The main objective from all the trails and this Learning & Community Programme is to raise vital funds for Break, so that we can continue giving children and young people living in care, on the edge of care or leaving care across the region, the time and support they need to achieve their full potential. I am grateful to Dipple & Conway for sponsoring the Learning & Community Programme and excited to be working with them to bring this wonderful educational programme to life.  It is thanks to all our sponsors and partners who support the charity, that we can deliver such a fantastic programme of events.

The GoGoDiscover Learning & Community Programme is delivered by East Anglian based children’s charity Break, in partnership with Wild in Art. The main sponsor for the programme is Dipple & Conway Opticians, with support from Roarr! and Norfolk Museum Services. 

Matthew Conway is a director of Dipple & Conway Opticians. “We loved being part of GoGoHares back in 2018 and being able to help Break to support local children and families,” says Matthew.  “We knew we wanted to get involved with GoGoDIscover and the Learning & Community Programme sits perfectly within our values and ethos as an independent, family-owned business.  We’re committed to providing the best possible clinical care, and eye-health education, to our clients and to playing an active role in the communities where we’re based. We are looking forward to working with Break, local schools and community groups over the next 18 months to help people discover their county and explore their creativity.”
