Big Draw Festival Events run by our 2019 Sponsor-Partners

We would like to say a huge thank you to our 2019 Sponsor-Partners! 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 2019!  View all events here or sign up to our localised event mailer for Big Draw events in your area this autumn.
