Artists, designers and builders urged to get creative and enter Blue Cross' bespoke kennels competition

Mon 25 Sep 2017

A BROMSGROVE animal charity is calling on local artists to design and exhibit a collection of dog kennels as part of an international charity project.

The Blue Cross is inviting creative artists, designers and builders to take part and raise funds for homeless, abandoned, sick and injured pets cared for by the charity.

The scheme began in March 2017 when the charity joined US based Outdoor Arts Foundation to launch ‘BowWow Haus London’, a public exhibition of bespoke dog kennels which will be displayed at sites across London.

Each kennel will be auctioned to the highest bidder in May 2018. So far there are 80 participants from across the globe, including architects Russian for Fish and Design Haus Liberty and designers Shiro Studio.

All have come up with contemporary and unusual takes on the traditional ‘mutt hut’.

Visit www.bluecross.org.uk/bowwowhaus or email bowwowhaus [at] bluecross [dot] org [dot] uk to find out more or to take part.
