Draw, Chat and Share

The aim of the workshop is to create community and awareness through drawing. The drawing will be the medium, and the publication will be its result. There is no single or best drawing. We are equal, and we all have our own ideas and visions around which we meet, discuss, and draw together. But who are we, and what do we want to do, or what can we do? How do we deal with limited resources? What is plan B, or plan C? First we get to know who we are. We find a topic we agree on and draw, the topic can be one of the urgent global situations today, or something personal, yet everyday. Through conversation we will work on ideas, and through group discussion we will show each other what and why we have done. The drawings will be linked in a fanzine that will be copied in a number of copies for each of the participants.
In the end, each goes home, with the other’s vision.
