South Africa's biggest, one night only, inner-city art exhibition and sale to raise funds for education. 

1000 Drawings is an empowerment project that culminates in a one-night-only, massive inner-city art sale to raise funds for a deserving cause – The Night of a 1000 Drawings.

Buyers will be spoilt for choice with doodles, scribbles, graffiti, sketches, watercolour and oil paintings, experimental and conceptual works, all on sale and going for a song. At R100 a piece, you could get your hands on a one-of-a-kind, original work by tomorrow’s big stars, or something beautiful to make you smile.


A sale of unique art pieces to raise funds for education of inner city kids in Jozi.

How to #GiveADoodle

So, you want to know how to #GiveADoodle – contribute something creative to #1000Drawings but you’re not sure how?  We’re here to help!

First off, you can donate anything in the arts and crafts realm that is A5 in size. This includes photographs, embroidery, painting, doodling and we’ve even had a pewter contribution.

So it’s up to you to take the creative plunge and decide what medium you want to use.

The next creative ball is also in your court. You need to decide what your subject matter is, bearing in mind that your creation will be sold for charity for R100 on our big event night. Some photos here of the last event, to inspire you!

If you’re feeling lonely doodling alone, keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming doodle sessions or host a group doodle-do with your BFFs.

The last step in being part of the amazing chain of 1000 Drawings love is dropping off your doodle. We’ve got doodle boxes awaiting your delivery dotted all around Johannesburg in coffee shops and galleries.

Check out our website for all the details.

When is the deadline for you to drop off? The big event is in November so by the end of October, latest please. But the sooner the better so we can share your work of art on Facebook.

Thank you and see you at the biggest, one night only, spectacular #GiveADoodle charity event in November.
