The Drawing Factory was an exciting, fast-paced event where a we worked in a 'factory' setting, complete with boiler suits, clocking in cards and a bossy foreman overseeing proceedings. Students, staff and members of the community came along to the iLounge in the Main Library, University of Birmingham to see their drawings on show along the 'production line', purchased a drawing for their collection or even commissioned a piece by placing an order! The Factory considered wider questions about the production of art, as well as celebrating the playful, social side of drawing practice, with visitors encouraged to create their own works of art alongside the artists.
The event was run as part of the Campaign for Drawing's Big Draw event (www.campaignfordrawing.org/bigdraw). The Drawing Factory was named as Runner Up in the Drawing Inspiration Awards 2012, which are also organised by the Campaign for Drawing.
All proceeds from the event have gone to LUCIA (www.luciacharity.org.uk), a charity that improves the lives of people living in troubled areas of Africa.
