It’s that time again, Joburg! The annual Night of 1000 Drawings exhibition and auction is happening tomorrow night at The Grove and Neighbourgoods Market in Braamfontein and is not to be missed.
The concept it simple – A5 drawings (of anything, by anyone, with anything) donated by the public and collected at previous doodle sessions over the last four months will be on exhibition and sold for R100 a piece. Proceeds go to two homeless-care organizations – PaballoYaBotha and Princess Alice Adoption Home. All creating a great to excuse to get out, see some art (maybe your own), buy some rad drawings for an even radder price, enjoy some bands and do it all for a good cause.
