For eight whole weeks in Autumn 2022, towns and villages across Kirklees will brought to life by a pack of dazzlingly decorated Snowdog sculptures, creating a spectacular event for our entire community to enjoy.
Based on The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, the classic animated story by Raymond Briggs, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will bring the magic of the Snowdog character to life through an extraordinary public art trail.
A free event for all, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will show off the very best creative talent from local, regional and national artists. Thirty uniquely designed Snowdogs, along with thirty mini sculptures, will be on display around Kirklees for visitors to discover and enjoy as part of a world class public arts event never seen before in West Yorkshire.
Each sculpture will be sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist – either well-known or just starting out – from the Kirklees area or further afield. The Kirkwood are teaming up with event experts Wild in Art, who have been delivering high profile events across the globe for over ten years, to put on an event our whole community will be proud of.
Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will have a big impact across the whole region, with business and schools getting involved and with hundreds of thousands of people expected to join in the fun.
Our pack of Snowdogs will arrive next Autumn, with money raised throughout the event helping to support The Kirkwood, who provide vital care for people affected by any life limiting illness across Kirklees, every step of the way.
