Open to Draw Scheme

One of the objectives of Drawing Projects UK is to enable the exploration of the role of drawing within a range of creative practices and contexts.  Our Open to Draw scheme provides the opportunity for artists, makers and curators to make proposals for residencies, projects and/or exhibitions that explore the role and value of drawing within their practice or field of enquiry.

Open to Draw proposals are reviewed by the Drawing Projects UK team and their advisers. Please download and complete the proposal form as we will only be able to respond to proposals that address each category of the form (if you are unable to use the proposal form for any reason, please submit your proposal as a Word document and ensure that you address each section or question). We will acknowledge receipt of your complete proposal form within ten days of receipt, and will review all proposals received on a quarterly basis. We may read and respond to your proposal in advance of this.
