DRAW - Freedom to Roam 2018

DRAWinternational residency programme continues to expand notions of drawing.

From the invisible to the visible and vice versa, through the consciousness of thought and action.

Drawing Research Action Works

Join us to explore drawing methodologies, meaning and material.

DRAWinternational offers artists the opportunity for sustained concentration in a supportive professional studio environment.


The centre is in the heart of a small medieval village, a rural community with a growing number of artists and craftspeople.


The AiR programme aims to support artists in their professional practice/research and encourage creative exchange.

Artists are selected on the quality of their residency proposal, it's relevance to DRAW's philosophy and the environment and evidence of previous artistic work.

The centre organises events (exhibitions, open workshops and seminars/presentations) to promote it's activities and share creative experience and opportunities within the public domain.
