The Maggie’s Centre, Wild in Art, sponsors, artists, schools and the community have come together to welcome 80 giant, individually designed penguin sculptures to the Tayside region during summer 2018. There trail goes live on the 29th June and will be live all summer culminating in a grand farewell event in Slessor Gardens on 22 and 23 September before a spectacular auction on 24 September 2018.

Meanwhile children in schools across the city have been learning all about penguins, and decorating smaller sized penguins (known as Baby Penguins), that are joining their friends on the trail before returning to live with their adopted school family.

Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, social and emotional support for people with cancer and their families and friends offering a programme of support that has been shown to strengthen physical and emotional wellbeing. Built in the grounds of Ninewells Hospital our centre, designed by Frank Gehry, is warm, welcoming, and full of light and open space. It’s a place to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; a place where qualified experts provide emotional support; a place to meet other people or simply sit with a cup of tea.

The Maggies Centre costs £540,000 per year to run and our aim for the parade is to raise enough money to open our doors for a year. To support the trail and fund raising efforts, the OOVIRT team have created a map of the Baby Penguins to help showcase the amazing work put together by the local schools and community organisations.

There is also a virtual tour (CLICK HERE TO SEE VIRTUAL TOUR – Close the map with the cross or map icon after loading to use the tour) to help improve accessibility to the Baby Penguins which will be added to through July. There are 16 locations where the 96 baby penguins can be viewed, these are numbered below in alphabetical order with details of the location’s address, opening times and the penguins located at each site. If there’s any additional information you think would help improve access or if you notice errors have been made then please get in touch to let us know.
