Sponsor Partners 2018


Big Draw Festival Events run by our 2018 Sponsor-Partners

Thank you to our 2018 Sponsor-Partners who represent a wide spectrum of organisations from all corners of the globe: From universities to shopping malls, theatres to local authorities. For each partner, drawing and visual literacy plays a vital role within their organisations and The Big Draw Festival represents a key event in their calendar, a way of drawing their communities together and creating a memorable, truly accessible event. 

Take a look at some of the show-stopping events hosted by our Sponsor-Partners in 2018!  View all events here or sign up to our localised event mailer for Big Draw events in your area this autumn. The main Festival still takes place in October worldwide, but Big Draw events take place throughout the year.
