How we supported Cows about Cambridge this summer
Cows about Cambridge is a FREE public art event that runs throughout the summer from 28th June – 4th September and showcases 90 cow sculptures that can be found through a trail of discovery across Cambridge.
The project brings together emerging and, as yet, undiscovered artists, local businesses and communities to create a fun experience to be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
Finding the collection of 44 large cows and 46 mini moos, is not only a fun activity, but also provides a creative opportunity to engage people in important topics – from environmental issues and the natural world, to citizenship and health and wellbeing, to name a few.
It also provides an incredible opportunity to raise money for Break, a children’s charity working across East Anglia to provide a brighter future for children and young people on the edge of care, in care, and leaving care through the charity auction at the end of the summer.
So how did we get involved?
We are a local business and as such had heard (excuse the pun!) of Cows about Cambridge in previous years.
We loved everything that it stood for, from the support of local artists, to the involvement of children and young people on their learning programmes, as well as the opportunity to engage people on important topics such as the environment and mental health.
So, we wanted to play our part by taking the Instant Home team for a day out in the city and helping to clean as many cows as we could.
We were incredibly lucky to have had a day of sunshine, and thoroughly enjoyed giving these moovellous creations a little spruce up. Our particular favourite was ‘Wandering Lions’ at ‘Cambridge University Botanic Garden’ sponsored by Bidwells .
The cows will still be grazing around Cambridge for several more weeks to come, so if you would like to take part in the trail you can download it here.
Alternatively you can download the app, more info here.
