Work from Inspire Big Draw: Living Lines workshops will be shown in The Big Draw: Living Lines exhibition touring library galleries from November 2017.
About The Big Draw
The Big Draw Festival is for anyone who loves to draw, as well as those who think they can't! It's an opportunity to join a global community in celebration of the universal language of drawing.
From 1-31 October, every year, thousands of enjoyable and experimental drawing activities connect people of all ages with schools, galleries, museums, libraries, heritage sites, village halls, refugee organisations, outdoor spaces - allsorts of places - artists, scientists, designers, illustrators, inventors and each other.
Since launching in 2000, the festival has taken place in 28 countries around the world, engaged over 3 million people and even clocked up two world records.
Anyone can get involved in the festival. Some famous folk who have supported past events include award-winning author Philip Pullman, Children's Laureate Chris Riddell, artist Tanya Raabe-Webber, illustrators Oliver Jeffers, Posy Simmonds and Sir Quentin Blake, and many more.
We’d love you to join us! By becoming a member of Inspire you will be able to have your say on how the society works and develops.
