The Big Draw (Campaign for Drawing) is now 20! In 20 years it has never been in receipt of revenue funds & relies on donations & our model. In 2020/21 our theme 'A Climate of Change' will focus on the relationship between people & our living environments & ecosystems & encourage Drawing for All.
The Big Draw is an arts education charity which uses 'drawing' in its broadest possible sense, as a starting point to encourage people to get involved in creative activity as consumers, producers, advocates & collaborators-'drawing for purpose' as well as supporting health & wellbeing. In ever challenging times the charity continues to innovate to survive- and thrive -but we need your help & support to achieve this and reach out to build the drawing community.
The charity has always consistently punched way above it's weight & contrary to outward perception has always been run by a tiny but passionate team. Currently 4 part time staff. We want to continue to encourage everyone to draw-to support their creativity & wellbeing. Drawing cuts across all boundaries of culture,race,class-it is accessible & open to all. We want to help showcase mindsets & actions that proactively support positive symbiosis between people & the Earth in these challenging times
