Great North Snowdogs was the largest mass participation art trail to ever hit the north east of England. Scampering across North Tyneside, Northumberland, Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and South Shields for ten weeks in  Autumn 2016, our pack of 64 large and 97 little Snowdogs took over, making friends, bringing people together and raising a massive £367,000 for St Oswald’s Children’s Hospice. 

On Thursday 4th May 2017, the Great North Snowdogs Team hosted a special Impact Event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Newcastle, to present the results of a survey in partnership with Wild in Art and NGI Solutions. The research aimed to measure the impact the trail on the region, the people of the north east and beyond. 

A special ‘In-fur-graphic’ has been created to illustrate the survey results, which you can visit here.

All dogs have now found their forever homes after being bought at auction or returning to their schools, and we are compiling photos and stories of their new lives, which we plan to share with you later this year. 

We are also excited to officially announce that a follow up trail will take place in the region in Autumn 2019, again raising funds for St Oswald’s. More details will be revealed later in the year, but watch this space! 

Huge thank you to everyone who was part of Great North Snowdogs – we think you are all PAWSOME!
