What is The Big Draw?
The Big Draw is a worldwide event hosted by a group called The Campaign for Drawing.
“The Campaign for Drawing is an independent charity which raises the profile of drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement.”
The Campaign “sees drawing as a basic human skill useful in all walks of life” and they claim that their work will be finished “when the words ‘I can’t draw’ are dropped from our vocabulary.”
As part of our module Ways of Seeing, we addressed the challenges of the Campaign by interviewing people who work towards providing services through Dundee University Student Association and then communicating these findings through drawings on the walls of the DUSA building.
