1000 Drawings: Doodling for a Difference

A 1000 drawings made an appearance in Joburg today. The event was held at the Alex theatre roof top.  This is a unique fundraising exhibition, where drawings donated by anyone and everyone, are collected and sold to the public for R100.

The event is to promote the inner city and encourage the general public to embrace the inner city more  and involvement the community as contributors of art work but also as volunteers to help manage and maintain the event. In that motivating the general public to use their creative juices and get involved in a good cause. The aim is to break the whole syndrome of “I cannot draw”, “I as an individual cannot do anything to change things, that’s the role of governments and big corporates”.

The next 1000 drawings event should be in two weeks and we will keep you up to date with the details.
