  • Fairness – equity & impartiality before the law and in everyday dealings with others.
  • Moderation – in all things.
  • Honesty – and integrity.
  • Cleanliness – both personal and environmental (no spitting or littering)
  • Civic Responsibility – volunteering a minimum of time to help your community.

The Big Draw  – 1st to 31st October 2010

The Big Draw is an annual, month-long season of drawing activities running from 1-31 October. Event organisers use drawing, painting and a multitude of other media to connect visitors with museum and gallery collections, urban and rural spaces – and the wider community – in new and enjoyable ways. Big Draws can be weird, wild or wonderful, but they all have one thing in common: they aim to get everyone drawing!

During October 2009, over 1300 Big Draws took place across the UK and internationally. From Budapest to Bristol and Melbourne to Margate people of all ages came together in galleries, museums, art clubs, heritage sites, parks, libraries, shopping centres and schools to participate in exciting drawing activities.

In the meantime, find out what happened in 2009 by visiting the Big Draw Flickr Group where you can view images from their Launch, Drawing on Life, at the Wellcome Collection and University College London; Transports of Delight: The Big Draw at St Pancras, The Big Picture Party at the British Library and many other Big Draw events across the UK and abroad.
