All you need to plan and deliver a successful Big Draw in 2014


Who can organise an event?

Anybody can!

  • Individuals: young people, artists, teachers, care workers, parents and home educators...
  • Organisations: museums, galleries, libraries, heritage sites, cinemas, parks, artist studios, schools, nurseries, colleges, care homes, hospitals, shops, community centres...

What does it cost?

The Campaign's mission is to get everyone drawing, so to lift barriers which might stop people organising or taking part in activities, registration remains free.

However, your donations are essential to the Campaign for Drawing's future as we receive no statutory funding. Please donate before registering your event. Consider giving £25, or any amount you can afford.
