The Big Draw also manages various initiatives throughout the year including collaborative research projects, campaigns, and educational conferences. The charity operates under the motto that “drawing changes lives,” and through its events and projects aims to demonstrate the various benefits something as simple as drawing can have in one’s life. It is the biggest drawing festival in the world.
