The theme of this years’ Big Draw is Drawn to Life: creativity and wellbeing, encouraging conversations around the role of mark making and drawing as a life-enhancing tool. Linking with MAC’s partnership with Bedlam Festival 2019 we are exploring the powerful impact drawing can have on wellbeing with a series of drawing and wellbeing events linked to our current exhibitions.

Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane's immersive drawing installations are made in a marathon fashion, expanding across entire walls over the course of an exhibition and we invite you to come to our Big Draw event to create a drawing on a similar scale. Using the same techniques and with the artists guidance, join in with our mass participation drawing to create a Big Draw world full of strange creatures, weird houses and giant forests.
