Brighton’s White Night festival has long been our best opportunity to put on the most glorious and spectacular drawing events. Sadly this year White Night wont be going ahead but rather than be deterred we’re going to put on something more wonderful than ever…
Firstly… on the 3rd November 2012 from 18:00 until midnight we will be putting on a huge, theatrical, participatory figure drawing event…sketch your way through a living fairy tale as the entirety of The Old Market is transformed into animaginarium of delight; the Cabinets of Wonder frame models in extravagant costume as muscular Greek Myth collides with germanic folk story and Shakespearian imagery with the imaginings of Lewes Carrol.
As part of the National Big Draw, in a set which evokes every Drawing Circus yet put on by Draw we bring you Brighton’s greatest drawing night with the TOM bar open all evening and live music played throughout, welcoming all abilities and levels of experience. Held at The Old Market, Hove; 3rd Nov 2012,18:00-midnight; Donations of £7 or more will get you a ticket.
Secondly… we will be producing two publications with acclaimed designersThe Entente called Manifesto and Charter, to be launched at the drawing event, exploring life drawing from many perspectives. Donations of £10 or more will get you a ticket and a book.
