Drawing Performance is a vibrant art form where artists create art from mark making in front of a live audience. The creation process, combining elements of line, movement, space and time, is a celebration of energy and creativity.

Draw to Perform is delighted to announce that after a long pause, forced by covid, we are looking forwards to our sixth international festival for performative drawing and painting. This cross-disciplinary project is curated by the Draw to Perform director Ram Samocha at Phoenix Art Space, Brighton. The festival will run over two weekends – Sat & Sun 9-10 & 16-17 July 2022 – and will include four dedicated workshops and ten live performances by inspiring and creative local and international artists.

This time the festival will be dedicated to exploring the transition from drawing to painting live and from two to three dimensions. It will explore the connection between drawing and performance art and the relevance of drawing as a modern art medium. The festival will focus on the various options of sharing the process of creating art live while drawing and painting with audience. Disabled and non-disabled artists, dancers and musicians, young and elder participants will take part in ten dedicated live performances and four workshops.

Please note, all performances will be available to watch online via live streaming, book your ticket here for only £10 and it will give you the opportunity to see all eight performances regardless of your location .
