The Big Draw Festival Community Event 2023

  • Sun 22 October 2023
  • 12 – 4 pm

Join Hauser & Wirth Somerset for a free creative workshop to celebrate The Big Draw Festival 2023 theme ‘Drawing with Senses.’

Inspired by the multidisciplinary Kunsthalle form of ‘GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG,’ explore the variety of works in the exhibition whilst listening closely to your senses and surroundings. By creating audio recordings of your sensory experiences, you will explore ways to translate sounds into color, shape and form through drawing.

All are welcome to participate, but please note that children must be supervised by a parent or carer. This event is free, but please book your tickets, per person, in advance for one of the following sessions:

• 12 – 1 pm
• 1.30 – 2.30 pm
• 3 – 4 pm

Continuing Hauser & Wirth’s annual partnership with The Big Draw, this event is part of the gallery’s global learning program with events across our locations in Somerset, London, Menorca, Los Angeles, New York and Chililda Leku. All participants are invited to submit their audio recordings to our Learning team to be part of this project throughout The Big Draw Festival period in October. Please be aware that only a small selection will be uploaded to our website.

The Big Draw theme for 2023, ‘Drawing with Senses’, changes the focus from external to internal, exploring the way we personally process the world and internalise our experiences through our senses.
