The Big Draw

The Big Draw

 

The international drawing festival comes back to Nijmegen this year! And of course it will be fully revolving around sustainability.

In the year 2000 the foundation The Campaign for Drawing started in London with a new event called The Big Draw. The Big Draw takes place in many major cities worldwide. The entire city is asked and challenged to draw. Many cities were ahead of us, such as Berlin, Barcelona, ​​New York, Sidney, Budapest and Cape Town.

When do you join in?

  • September 6-7 The Big Draw for schools
    September 7 a symposium together with the Radboud on art and sustainability
    September 8 for the city center
    September 9 for the Vasim and Honig

Nijmegen has been elected European Green Capital 2018! We are the first Dutch city to hold this title, with Copenhagen, Bristol, Ljubljana, Essen and several others before us. We have earned the award by spending many years working hard on greening and sustainability. And by ‘we’ we mean the entire city and surroundings; both young and old, with major and minor activities.

WE’D LOVE TO MEET YOU IN OUR VISITOR’S PAVILION

The Visitors Pavilion on Kelfkensbos Square is the calling card of Green Capital and Nijmegen in 2018. We are quite proud of it, too! The pavilion is our ‘home’ for all of 2018. Here you’ll find everything you want to know about Green Capital. Feel free to ask us anything, get leaflets of our Green Routes or info about our events and Green Challenges. It’s open for visitors every day between 12 and 5 PM. A number of activities take place in the Pavilion. You will find these in our calendar.

Architect and interior
The pavilion was designed by the famous Flemish architect Chris Poulissen. Does his name sound familiar to you? That could be right! He previously worked on innovative constructions such as the Oversteek and the Lentloper. The interior is by Jordan Artisan. He provided a beautiful, sustainable and recognizable design that everyone feels at home with.

Demountable
The pavilion is an arc-shaped building made of tree trunks. The pavilion is easy to disassemble. And that’s going to happen after 2018; the pavilion will then be rebuilt and reused somewhere else.

ALL EVENTS!
