  • Your personal data is never passed to third parties and is only used by The Big Draw in relation to The Big Draw website.

2. Permitted event types under The Big Draw trademarked brand

We welcome and invite our Big Draw Festival event organisers to create their events to be as diverse and inventive as imagination allows. Events can take a variety of formats and forms, including some or all of the following elements: workshops, showcases, exhibitions, tasters, symposia, talks and presentations, art trails, sketch-crawls, drawing classes (digital or otherwise) performance, etc.

Please note, however, that by registering to run a Big Draw Festival event, does not grant a license to run any form of official CPD or training sessions under The Big Draw brand.

From time to time the charity does run CPD and or training type sessions or projects, but these arise from strategic partnerships where the content and format has been carefully curated, the partners handpicked, and The Big Draw has had direct input to ensure quality. Any training-CPD type events/products/materials, which are not produced 'in house' are not endorsed by The Big Draw and we take no responsibility for their content or quality.

Parties who use our name, brand or/and IP and associate this to their own training or CPD products and training sessions without our permission are in breach of our copyright and will be asked to remove all references to The Big Draw immediately. Ongoing breach of our copyright will result in further measures to protect the integrity and IP of the charity.

We do, however, fully understand that in many events there will be an aspect of learning and imparting of knowledge that is inherent to the event and vital to its overall shape. We encourage and applaud this. This is very different to a publicly labeled CPD and/or training session being run in The Big Draw’s name, trading off our brand under the guise of a Festival event / events / programme where we have not given consent. In these instances the breach could also entail the party potentially generating revenue from third parties paying for the unaffiliated ‘Big Draw’ training.

We urge all of our users and organisers to always check our listings to ensure any Big Draw training is legitimate and affiliated, and if in doubt to speak to a member of The Big Draw team. Only The Big Draw and our recognised Big Draw Associates may run training and professional development sessions.
