There’s a braw initiative happening in Dundee this summer, brought to you by The Archie Foundation, DC Thomson and Wild in Art.

The Oor Wullie Bucket Trail is a huge public art event running from 27 June to 27 August. Imagine fifty five 5ft tall sculptures of Oor Wullie sitting on his bucket, all individually sponsored and decorated by artists/designers to be located around the city for the public to view, share and adore. Trail maps and a digital app are available to enable the folks of Dundee and visitors to the city to go out and find all 55 sculptures and to strike them off their ‘bucket’ list. At the end of the summer on the 13th September the statues will all be auctioned off with proceeds going to the Archie Foundation’s appeal for a new twin operating theatre pediatric surgical suite for Tayside Children’s Hospital.

While the trail is underway in Dundee, 10 additional Oor Wullies will set off on an eight week national tour around Scotland. They will start in Aberdeen on 4th June and travel to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, Perth, & Inverness, returning eight weeks later to Dundee in time to join the rest of the Bucket Trail at the grand auction of all the sculptures. You may remember the Wild Dolphins in Aberdeen or the Cows in Edinburgh – this summer come & join in Oor Wullie’s 80th Anniversary as part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture & Design. Be inspired, get imaginative, celebrate the character and creativity of Scotland and have fun in the biggest mass participation public art event ever to take place in the city.

A’ the best!
