An initiative of Perth Children's Hospital Foundation and Wild in Art, The Big Splash WA is a vibrant art event that will take place in the streets, parks and public spaces of Perth and surrounds between January and March 2018.

A pod of 36 wildly colourful dolphin sculptures painted by local artists will swim into town as part of a mass public art exhibition to raise awareness and valuable funds for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health unit of Perth Children’s Hospital. Funds raised will initiate innovative programs for children and adolescents with severe mental health disorders who are at significant risk.

The City of South Perth will host four of The Big Splash WA dolphin sculptures located along the South Perth Esplanade, near the Narrows Bridge, at Mends Street Jetty and outside Perth Zoo.
