Community Activities // Coming up // StreetDraw24
8 October


StreetDraw24 is an annual 24-hour drawing event held here in Falmouth which raises funds for St Petrocs’ work with people facing homelessness in Cornwall. This year's draw runs from noon on Friday 8th October to noon on Saturday 9th October. 

This will be the fourth year where people who love drawing – artists, students, enthusiasts, amateurs – get out and about in the town during a 24-hour period and make images of whatever they choose however they choose. Some people draw for 24 hours others take part briefly. Some draw alone, others in groups. Some create one image, others many! 

There’s no cost to participate and everyone is welcome. Simply sign up on Facebook or email Participation packs will be available from The Poly in the week of the draw.  

All artists who participate will be invited to donate images created during the draw to show in The Poly's Spring Gallery, 19-23 October. Work will be sold to raise funds for St Petrocs - last year StreetDraw24 raised £4,500 to support their important work. 

This year the StreetDraw24 team want to encourage individuals and groups who might like to take part but are not sure where to start to join in! Thanks to FEAST and Cornwall Community Foundation a small pot of funding is available to support this so please get in touch if you’re interested. 

Check out StreetDraw24 on FacebookInstagram or on their website to find out more.

This is an external event in collaboration with The Poly and will be taking place throughout Falmouth from noon on Friday 8th to noon on Saturday 9th October.
