Sketchbooks Are Dead

An experience connecting people through sketchbooks, sketching, food, drink and putting all those elements into a beautifully curated space for people to explore. This is great opportunity for people to engage one another while exploring and challenging their own artistic abilities.

Provocations

Provocations is an experimental exercise in portraiture. By applying a series of creative obstructions to participants drawing process’, we aim to evoke a number of emotional responses. These responses, or provocations, are intended to produce unique and unexpected outcomes. Provocations aims to evolve the pair-drawing experience.

Quietude

An evening of stillness, calmness, and quiet, in a beautifully curated environment. This event combines drawing and meditation to create an evening of complete communication through sketching and writing. The event encourages attendees to appreciate quietude and go the whole evening without saying a word.
