The Big Draw at Rufford Craft Centre 2013
We are already thinking about Big Draw 2013 for Rufford and Nottinghamshire. With big plans to make this one the best yet! Hot from the drawing Inspiration awards where we won the Trailblazer award for our innovative training we are working hard to encourage new groups to get involved.
This press release from the Campaign for Drawing highlights the success of our 2012 event and looks forward to this years campaign.
The Big Draw is the world’s biggest celebration of drawing. It has grown into a month-long festival running throughout October in all parts of the UK. Every year more organisers across the world join the Big Draw family and run drawing events to engage their communities in creative activities. See more about the Campaign for Drawing. This independent charity raises the profile of drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement.
This year's theme is 'Draw Tomorrow'
- What does the future look like?
- Where will you be and what will you do?
- What can we do to make the world a happier place?
- Draw the things which you would most like to improve – anything from clothes to buildings, food to transport, museums to playgrounds
- If you could invent one thing to create happiness, how would it work?
- What will your hometown look like in the future?
