What will you bring to life? The Big Draw Festival 2017 is here

From 1 - 31 October the world’s biggest celebration of the humble pencil will connect disastrous drawers and doodling superstars from across the globe, for #LivingLines17

The 2017 Festival theme, Living Lines: An Animated Big Draw Festival, aims to unite pixels, pencils and people from across the globe to learn, experiment and bring ideas to life through drawing and animation. Living Lines will explore the long history of people finding ways to create moving images; from pre-film animation devices such as Zoetropes, to the most cutting edge digital drawing and animation technologies. Events will host masters of animation, but organisers and participants do not need to have any animation experience themselves.

Visit The Big Draw website to find out more and learn about events happening near you.
