Please sir, I want some Morph!: Schools Invited to Join Unique Charity ‘Adventure’
ONE of TV’s best-loved mischief-makers is winging his way into classrooms as part of a project open to schools across the UK.
Animated favourite Morph – who first appeared on screen more than 45 years ago – is the star of a Whizz-Kidz initiative aimed at improving inclusivity and access for disabled people.
The Whizz-Kidz project, Morph’s Epic Art Adventure, culminates next summer with the installation of dozens of eye-catching Morph sculptures on a step-free trail around some of London’s most famous landmarks.
Schools are being invited to design and contribute their own 93cm (three-feet) high Morphs, which will feature on the trail alongside a series of 1.8m (six-feet) models of the cheeky character painted by budding, established and celebrity artists.
The project is spearheaded by Whizz-Kidz, the UK’s leading charity for young wheelchair users, with the support of Aardman and event planners Wild in Art.
Sarah Pugh, chief executive of Whizz-Kidz, said:
“We hope this will be a fun and exciting way for schools not only to inspire artistic creativity but to open up conversations around disability and inclusion. Morph’s Epic Art Adventure will be fully wheelchair-accessible, embodying Whizz-Kidz’ vision of a world where young wheelchair users are enabled to live life to the full, without unnecessary dependence on others or exclusion from the activities that millions take for granted.”
