Last year, we brought the world’s largest drawing festival to Japan for the first time!
And this year, we’re not only bringing it back, but we’re collaborating in a trailblazing art event across countries, cultures, and time zones!
As part of this cross-cultural exchange, we’ll be sending Japanese art materials to Ruskin Land in Bewdley, in the U.K., and they’re sending us art materials from there, including charcoal made in their woods! Through using, understanding and experimenting with traditional drawing methods and materials, everyone will be able to incorporate their own style and knowledge alongside a different cultural practice.
The Big Draw Festival takes place every year in October and, since its launch in October 2000, this annual, international celebration of drawing, which brings people together under the banner ‘drawing is a universal language’, takes place in over 25 countries, involves over 1000 events and has encouraged over 4 million people back to the drawing board.
Kate Mason, director of The Big Draw:
“As always, The Big Draw Festival is for anyone who loves to draw, as well as those who think they can’t!
For 31 days in over 25 countries, The Big Draw Festival will bring together hundreds of thousands of people to learn, experiment and bring ideas to life through drawing…
…an opportunity for individuals, organisations and countries to join a global community in celebration of the universal language of drawing.”
