1000 Drawings, Doodling for a Difference
Shani Judes will be talking about a community based project called 1000 Drawings, where everybuddy is invited to create A5 artworks which will be exhibited on the 28th August, part of the largest group show of World Design Capital 2014. Money raised from the selling of these artworks will be used to uplift a school in Retreat, the Thomas Wildschutt School, 1000 Drawings will be supporting three local organisations to create the change in this school.
