The Big Draw – The world’s largest drawing festival | Sam and Sian: Drawing as Stimming

Be the first to favourite this.

Drawing as Stimming for The Big Draw looks to create a time where stimming can happen, through drawing digitally and in response to stimuli internal to and external to the body. It seeks to explore how drawing and mark-making can support non-verbal communication and exploration, whilst also providing space to stim. Drawing As Stimming is about opening up the body to wider listening. Stims are the repetitive, often soothing movements made by many autistic and neurodivergent people.

A workshop is to help you become a better nature writer. Over the course of 90-120 minutes we’ll use two complementary forms - haiku and flash fiction - and draw inspiration from the shoreline (sea, lake, pond, river or stream) and other parts of the natural world.

Walking, isolation and togetherness

Social isolation, already prevalent for many, has been exacerbated during the pandemic. Author Sonia Overall argues that walking alone can increase togetherness, regardless of absences and physical distance.

The rhythm of the streets

2021-07-08 18:00

Online

Walking lays the rhythm of the streets, archives the voice and the memory of the city. Our feet are an instrument, and they read the sonic composition of urban space. Our listening revitalizes social space. By walking we connect our body with the body of the city, as players and listeners of an urbanophonic orchestra - conversation about how walkers resonate with the city and how the city is sonorically composed by / of its walkers.
