Friends, art lovers and creative countrymen – lend us your skills!

We’re back with Night of 1000 Drawings 2020. And when we say bigger and better – we mean it – literally. No longer is the event just one evening. We’re rolling out a weekend of wonderfulness for you.

The Reason Being

Expanding the event over two days gives us more opportunity to showcase your donations, flaunt our unique, world-class local talent and raise even more money for inner-city youngsters and their welfare and education.

But Wait, There’s More

We’re casting our creative net wider. Inviting creatives from all around the globe to donate. Drawing people together to galvanise change. (Please forward this to anyone you know overseas who’d like to be involved.)

The Recent Back-Story

If you donated art to #1000D2019 or were at the event at Victoria Yards on 30 March 2019 you’ll want to know about money you raised. Over R150 000 went to three of Johannesburg’s inner-city projects: namely DlalaNje, Everybody Love Everybody and PaballoYa Batho.

Thank You So Much

6000 pieces of A5 original art pieces were donated. Through the generosity of time, creativity and spirit by the artists, organisers, event attendees and volunteers the lives of many have been positively impacted. It’s a beautiful creative circle with the ripples of the #1000D the pond growing bigger as we touch more and more people.

Latest Love Affair

Okay, partnership. We’re excited to announce we have official Comedy Ambassadors for #1000D2020 – Goliath and Goliath. Their giant (irreverent) hearts and humour will create a lasting sense of local magic and anticipation. Support them if you can!

Pro-Artists Already Weighing In

The ball is already rolling with professional artists pledging towards #1000D2020.  The line up is actually pretty incredible: (Please hyperlink these pages)

Immediate Future

You know we need you, right? Each donation of A5 art goes towards the bigger picture. We put love in and (thanks to you) get a lot of love out. It takes time and planning to ensure everything merges together beautifully. Like a vivid oil painting on a fresh canvas. So let’s get busy with the brushstrokes.

Remember it doesn’t have to be a Van Goch, the most important aspect is that it be self-created art in A5 format on anything with anything.
