Venue: Ventnor Exchange

Come and take part in the World’s Biggest Drawing Festival – The Big Draw – at the Ventnor Exchange this half-term!

To celebrate this year’s theme, “Every Drawing Tells a Story”, Quay Arts is running a FREE, larger than life-sized community drawing event, Exquisite Corpse, at the Ventnor Exchange on Hallowe’en, Saturday 31 October. There will be 3 sessions run by Ventnor artist Joanna Kori throughout the day – at 10am, 1pm and 4pm. All materials are provided and refreshments are available.

The event is supported by The Daisie Rich Trust and is suitable for all artistic levels, ages, individuals, pairs, groups and families.

Exquisite Corpse: Game of folded paper played by several people, who compose a sentence or drawing without anyone seeing the preceding collaboration or collaborations. The now classic example, which gave the game its name, was drawn from the first sentence obtained this way: The-exquisite-corpse-will-drink-new-wine.”

–André Breton (founder of Surrealism)

Your life-sized collaborative drawings and sentences will be displayed at Ventnor Exchange over the weekend and used as a source of inspiration for the poets taking part in our Spoken Word session on Sunday 1 November 2015. We will then enter your efforts for a Big Draw Award for inspiring community events.

So put Saturday 31 October in your diary and enjoy a spookily good time at the Ventnor Exchange!

Saturday 31 October, 10-11am, 1-2pm, 4-5pm, FREE, Ventnor Exchange
