Vote for your favourite Big Draw Festival 2019 events! #DrawnToLife
The Big Draw Festival is worldwide celebration of creativity, community and proactivity! So whether you visit a Big Draw event and draw for the first time in 20 years or organise your own every year, we want to celebrate the people behind the projects and pencils!
Inaugurated in 2017, The Big Draw Festival People's Choice Award accompanies our 6 annual, panel selected Big Draw Festival Awards that recognise the innovation, energy and resourcefulness of Big Draw Festival organisers' events.
Voting for The People's Choice Award 2019 opens in July but please join us in congratulating the 2018 People's Chioce Award Winners: 24H Drawing Lab (Organisers: Rivka Spizzichino & Sara Spikkichino), Rome, Italy
"The Drawing Lab considers drawing as a non-verbal thinking process: an act of self-confidence where someone needs to trust themself to capture reality. We strongly believe in the multidisciplinary nature of drawing as well, which embraces various fields of knowledge beyond art, such as mathematics, psychology, medicine, astronomy and many others."
- Rivka Spizzichino & Sara Spikkichino - founders of 24H Drawing Lab
