A Wild in Art event delivered in partnership with Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity

A Message from Birmingham Children’s Hospital For over 150 years Birmingham Children’s Hospital has been an integral and treasured part of the city’s landscape. Treating one in five children from the ten districts of Birmingham every year, it is an institution that has touched everybody in Birmingham at some point in their lives and this is why it is the beneficiary of The Big Hoot 2015. “I am so excited at the thought of hundreds of vibrant owls swooping into Birmingham to fill it with colour. The innovative ‘Big Hoot’ offers families a free and fun day out, exploring areas of our city they may never have visited before, with the added bonus of helping them to stay active. This is important to us, because at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, we believe leading an active lifestyle is one of the best things you can do for your family’s health, and we are committed to doing all we can to promote it. We thank everybody who has supported this important project. We simply could not have done it without you.” Sarah-Jane Marsh Chief Executive, Birmingham Children’s Hospital

The Big Hoot A Celebration of Creativity in Birmingham Across the region, behind closed doors, an invasion was being planned. Businesses, artists and communities knew the secret - and of course the children were getting ready too. Then, one by one, they came. A street corner here, a shopping centre there, until the people awoke one morning and found them - over 210 owls with a story to tell... With 89 giant owls to see - each one individually created by artists from Birmingham and beyond - and over 120 owlets created as part of The Little Hoot education programme, this owl spotting experience is inspiring fun for everyone and is completely FREE. Follow the trail from the city centre to Sutton Coldfield, Winson Green to Kings Heath and many places in between and enjoy beautiful open spaces, inspiring buildings and Birmingham’s cultural heritage along the way. Enjoy cartoon owls; night owls; wise owls; celebrity owls; jewellery owls; the ‘Owl and the Pussycat’; owls from the pyramids of Egypt, Amazonian Rainforests and outer space; owls that celebrate Birmingham’s landmark architecture, history, people, places, cultural diversity and more… All the giant owls have been generously sponsored by companies and organisations and at the end of the trail, they will be auctioned to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

We hope you have fun discovering all the owls and now...let the ‘owl-spotting’ begin!!!

A Message from Wild in Art We very much hope that The Big Hoot offers both residents and visitors an opportunity to discover Birmingham’s rich cultural and creative offer, whilst at the same time raising significant funds for our partner Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The success of The Big Hoot has been completely dependent on the generous participation and exceptional contribution of many people and communities across the region. The incredible level of support from businesses is unprecedented and we are indebted to so many companies and organisations who have embraced this project. We would particularly like to extend sincere thanks to all the many talented artists and schools who have taken the owl sculpture as a blank canvas and expressed a myriad of stories in such creative and innovative ways. We hope that you take these special owls ‘under your wing’ and do share your photographs and stories with us. Sally-Ann Wilkinson and Charlie Langhorne Directors www.wildinart.co.uk

For The Little Hoot Trail Map go to www.thebighoot.co.uk

A very big thank you to everyone who has embraced this project - your collective creativity is nothing short of ‘owl-some’!

The enthusiasm and commitment of teachers and pupils to be at the core of this unique cultural experience has already propelled it into being Britain’s biggest school public art event of the year.

Over 25,000 children have spent many months experiencing and enjoying the magic of the visual arts while undertaking their own fundraising activities for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. All their individually designed owlet sculptures are displayed in ‘parliaments’ in 18 venues across the city. (Please see map overleaf).

The Little Hoot is a citywide education programme which has engaged young people from nursery, primary, secondary and special schools together with a college and four community groups.

As you are out and about tracking down the owls, look out for over 120 smaller owlet sculptures.

Funded by:

Swoop on into the neighbourhoods of Birchfield, Bordesley Green, Handsworth, Nechells, Erdington, Soho, Ward End, Winson Green and Yardley to discover lots of interesting facts, including Charlie Chaplin’s connection to the city!

Some projects have focused on local history, others looked to the future, or explored the more recent past - such as the inspiring consequences of the demolishment of Perry Common in the late 1980s/ early 90s. One team worked with award-winning a cappella quintet, Black Voices, while another took inspiration from Soho House, once the home of influential industrialist, Matthew Boulton, and a meeting place for some of the greatest minds of the 18th century.

Birmingham City Council Culture Commissioning Service - with match-funding by businesses and grants - have supported 10 arts projects to enable communities to participate in this special event. Located in the heart of Birmingham’s neighbourhoods, teams of residents from local children and young people to adults of all ages have taken part in workshops led by experienced artists to explore, celebrate and share the cultural heritage of the city’s residents through the decoration of Big Hoot owl sculptures.

Most people love a piece of cake and a bake sale over lunch or at home is one of the most popular ways to raise funds. You could theme your sale with owl shaped biscuits or decorations and see how creative children, parents and staff can be! Selling tea, coffee and hot chocolate or holding a Big Hoot raffle will also help boost your profits.

We all know owls are the wisest of birds. Test your wise owls by holding a quiz at work, school or even at your local pub.

If you would like to help us to achieve something extra special this year then please support The Big Hoot by getting sponsored to complete the trail, visit one of our shops or help us find a home for these amazing sculptures at the auction.

There is always so much more that we can and want to do for our amazing hospital and never ones to rest on our laurels, this year we are raising money for a range of vital projects such as Magnolia House, a brand new facility for families facing the toughest time imaginable and completing our Let Us Play Appeal that intends to create bright and spacious playrooms that will make each child’s stay in hospital a little better.

Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful charitable supporters they have enabled us to fund a whole range of projects that make us a world-class Children’s Hospital that the whole region depends on.
