The Big Hoot, Auckland 2018

Claim your place in the Big Hoot art trail, sweeping through the streets of Auckland in 2018

For ten weeks from early March to May 2018, Auckland’s streets, parks and open spaces will play host to up to 50 individually designed and beautifully created 1.6m tall Owls.

Each owl will be brought to life by a local artist – well-known or undiscovered – and sponsored by a New Zealand business. Armed with a trail map and app, the community will be able to don their walking shoes and get outdoors, tracking down each owl and collecting special incentives as they go!  

Businesses as well as schools, community groups and artists have a unique opportunity to be part of the Big Hoot 2018. Businesses wanting to sponsor an owl can visit here for more information.  

At the end of the Big Hoot, each Owl will take centre stage at a charitable auction to raise funds for Child Cancer Foundation. The Big Hoot is presented by Child Cancer Foundation in partnership with the International creator of the event, Wild in Art.
