Where is it and when?
Who is behind Gratitude?
How did the event work?
Artists who are well-known, emerging and as yet undiscovered submitted unique designs to be considered for the installation. These design ideas were be presented to sponsors in March 2021 and each sponsor selected a design to be replicated on their sculpture. The successful artists were paid an honorarium to customise each sculpture.
Residents and visitors explored Gratitude with a printed guide and/or the app, which helped them find out more about the sculptures and unlock exciting rewards provided by Gratitude sponsors.
How was Gratitude funded?
The money from the purchase of these sponsorship packages goes towards covering the cost of manufacturing the sculpture, paying the artists who decorate the sculptures, and the entire event infrastructure, operations and logistics for putting the sculptures in the display locations, and all Gratitude associated events.
Why should businesses sponsor a sculpture?
In becoming part of this unique event, sponsors directly supported the arts and creative industries through national and regional artist commissions, a sector hugely impacted by the pandemic.

Why should artists take part in a Wild in Art event?
The events transform spaces into fun family-friendly galleries, helping people experience art out of traditional settings. Thousands of people will encounter an artist’s work through the displays and learn more about the artist through the event’s marketing channels.
It’s also a great way for artists to help an event’s charity beneficiary through the auction.
The events are positive and fun to be involved with – helping artists to expand their networks and make connections with fellow artists, as well as businesses and community groups.
