THE BIG EVENT – NIGHT OF 1000 DRAWINGS
The Night of 1000 Drawings Event is held in November when all the A5 donations are put on sale. Buyers are spoilt for choice and can get their hands on a one-of-a-kind original work of tomorrow’s big stars, or something beautiful to make them smile – all for R100 per artwork.
As well as the art on sale, Night of 1000 Drawings promotes local live music, has artists draw and interact live, as well as a great selection of artisan food and drink from local food trucks and suppliers.
Tickets are available on sale before the event and people are encouraged to pre-buy tickets to avoid any queues on the night. On the evening, an initial viewing period commences at 6pm. At 7pm visitors are invited to attach their stickers to the pegs displaying the designs or photographs that they wish to purchase. At 9pm the drawings are taken down by the 1000 Drawings volunteers and given to the purchaser (who needs to show the corresponding number slip!).
