‘Mini Gs’ looking for young people to bring them to life as part of Cambridge Standing Tall





Break, the charity behind next year’s Cambridge Standing Tall art trail, is looking for schools and community groups to design and decorate their very own ‘Mini G’ as part of a community programme.

Spring 2024 will see up to 40 large giraffe sculptures make the city their new home for the trail and, alongside these gentle giants, will be 50 smaller sculptures.

Senior partnerships and project manager Peter Marron said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to be involved in an exciting new art trail of gigantic proportions.

“The Learning and Community Programme aims to develop pupils’ imagination, aid creativity, and help to build their confidence when they see their Mini G on the trail.

“It also comes with a creative learning resource pack designed to complement the curriculum, giving ideas on lesson plans and includes some fantastic educational activities.

“We’re expecting up to 10,000 people to take part in the programme and not only will each participating group get their very own Mini G sculpture to design and decorate, but once it has finished being showcased in venues across Cambridge, it will be returned to be kept as a unique memento of another incredible trail for the city.”
