Having a Hoot at Work: Owls of Bath 2018
Posted by Interaction on 25/06/2018
What do you get when you combine workplace experts, an owl sculpture, and a Graphic Designer?
...Introducing “Having a Hoot at Work”
This summer, 81 owls will be nesting in various locations across Bath as part of the Minerva Owls of Bath Sculpture Trail; the same team who were behind the Pig’s Sculpture Trail back in 2008.
Staying true to our passions for creativity and the Bath community, we’ve sponsored our very own owl and called it “Having a Hoot at Work”. Its design brings together all the aspects that make an amazing workplace – you’ll find buzzwords, design features and lots of other inspiration!
As a bonus, our owl also holds the answer to our prize-winning competition – find out how to enter by reading on!
As well as spreading the word about the importance of creative and collaborative workplaces, we also love any opportunity to support the local community – especially as we’ve been a part of it for over 26 years.
Every owl will be auctioned in late October, with the profits being shared between four local charities: 70% to the new cancer centre at the Royal United Hospital and 30% to Bath Young Carers, Roman Baths' Archway Project, and The UK Little Owl Project.
We’ve collaborated with Bath-based designer Nat Al-Tahhan to create our owl. Specialising in graphic design, we thought Nat’s artistic style reflected the fun and creative nature of our team, and our workplace design and build projects.
Take a look at this time lapse of Nat creating the owl:
When and Where?
The Owls of Bath will be nesting at various locations across the city from the 25th of June until the 10th of September.
You’ll be able to visit our owl at Bartlett Street, just above our office (BA1 2QZ). Just like us humans, owls need some respite from the outdoors, so in the evenings you’ll be able to see it through the window at Café Lucca.
To find out where all the owls are located and to plan your visit, download the Owls of Bath app from the the 25th of June.
To be in with a chance of winning our prize, see how many individual owls you can find hidden within our owl’s artwork. Email your name, age, and answer to us at email@example.com by the 10th of September. We’ll then pick a winner at random in September! Good luck!
Whilst our owl is nesting, keep a beady eye on our social media for any news. If you’ve visited our owl and taken some pictures, don’t keep them owl to yourself! Tag us on Instagram at interaction_offices and twitter at @InteractionLtd - don't forget the hashtag #havingahootatwork!
