Draw to Perform is delighted to announce that after a long pause, we are looking forward to our sixth international festival for performative drawing and painting. This cross-disciplinary project is curated by the Draw to Perform director Ram Samocha at Phoenix Art Space. The festival will run over two weekends – 9th/10th and 16th/17th – and will include workshops, talks and ten live performances by inspiring and creative local and international artists. All performances will be available to watch online via live streaming.

This time the festival will be dedicated to exploring the transition from drawing to painting live and from two to three dimensions. It will explore the connection between drawing and performance art and the relevance of drawing as a modern art medium. The festival will focus on the various options of sharing the process of creating art live while drawing and painting with audience. Disabled and non-disabled artists, dancers and musicians, young and elder participants will take part in dedicated live performances and workshops.

For more information about this exciting festival, workshops and performances please visit the Draw to Perform website here.

“After the great success of our last festival here in Brighton, we’re so excited to continue the tradition for artistic freedom that the city is famous for. This unique, must-see performance promises to be high energy, combining drawing, theatre, dance, and music into a vibrant and dynamic event for all the family.” – Ram Samocha
