Time All day
Venue Beeston Library

An exhibition celebrating all The Big Draw 2017 – Living Lines events across Inspire venues in Nottinghamshire. You worked with artists to make textured rollers and cardboard shoes and moved your bodies to make marks and print patterns with your creations. Miles of beautiful delicate and wild papers were made and the Gallery is filled with a riot of these collaborative works. Can you find the mark you made…

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.
