Postcards from a happy place

Get involved in our BIG DRAW event at Rich Mix, part of the world’s biggest Drawing Festival in 2019.

What is a postcard? What memories do they hold? This year, Art Hoppers invite us to open tiny windows into our personal journey’s by drawing declarations of happiness ready for the post!

Postcards are as much for the postman as they are for those closest to us – A ‘wish you were here’ for all to see. If a postcard inspires the memory of a happy place in miniature, perhaps re-imagining the stories and pictures that go with it are a way of connecting with our happiest and most creatives selves at large.

Join Art Hoppers in our BIG DRAW event celebrating communication and the playful visualising of landmark moments in our lives. Paint pictures, design stamps, write messages.

We’ll be tipping our caps to world post day (9th Oct) in gratitude of the global system which launches our intimate stories and helps conversations take flight around the world …

FREE goodie bags with a blank postcard, postage stamp and art materials will be offered to participating children on the day of the event along with Big Draw certificates and stickers!

Vote for ‘Postcards from a happy place’!

If you like the sound of our event or enjoyed taking part in it, please vote for ‘postcards from a happy place‘ to win THE BIG DRAW FESTIVAL 2019 – PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
